After several years of languishing without a leader, the SRCC’s Neighborhood Watch Program is set to get back on track and back on our streets! Neighbor Tom Groce has volunteered to step up as Public Safety Committee Chair and will lead our efforts at getting patrols going again. The Austin Police Department requires that each volunteer be trained prior to participating in patrols, so we have arranged for a training to take place at the church:
SRCC Neighborhood Watch Patrol Training
Thursday, February 22, 2018
Life In The City United Methodist Church
205 E. Monroe St
6:30pm to approximately 8:30pm
The training is being conducted by Veronica Saldate, from the Office of Community Liaison, Austin Police Department.
Patrols may be done in a vehicle, by bike, or on foot. The program emphasizes patrolling safely and avoiding direct confrontations. Suspicious activity is reported to 911.
All current volunteers for the Neighborhood Watch, as well as anyone else interested in participating in the Neighborhood Watch are asked to attend. Please contact Tom directly if you have any questions:
