Crime Watch

THE NEXT CRIME WATCH PATROL CLASS WILL BE HELD APRIL 17.

Sometimes it’s good to be a nosey neighbor! I’m not talking about the Gladys Kravitz character in the TV show, Bewitched, but the neighbor who is aware of his neighbor’s routines and knows when something looks suspicious. Besides neighbors looking after neighbors, Arapaho Heights Neighborhood Association (AHNA) has another way to look after each other, and that’s through the crime watch patrol (CWP) group.

CWP volunteers drive or walk the neighborhood, paying attention for out of the ordinary circumstances. Reports of suspicious activity are called in to the Richardson Police Department. Volunteers are not required - in fact are prohibited - from approaching suspicious people or vehicle.

We need more volunteers. If you can help, please contact us at crimewatch@arapahoheights.com

Before you can join CWP, you must complete a background check by the Richardson Police Department, receive RPD approval, and then attend an RPD-sponsored training class. The application is online at:

Crime Watch Application.

Interested folks must remember that the RPD has to receive your applications, complete background checks, and give approval for you to attend the classes. The RPD schedules these classes according to need, so get your applications in quickly. For more information about training classes, including questions about the application process, contact RPD
