Citizens on Patrol
History

On October 15, 1991, 105 persons representing eleven neighborhoods attended a twelve-hour training session at the Fort Worth Police Academy.   The training was conducted for three hours per night over a four-night period covering legal liabilities, patrol procedures, communications, and the penal code.

No one anticipated how successful the Citizens on Patrol Program would be.   The program has been credited with being a primary factor in decreases in Part I Crimes especially those of theft, burglary, and auto theft.   It also has served as a catalyst in strengthening neighborhoods, and remains in an expansion mode.

Advanced training has been instituted at the Field Operations Divisions and the department has an annual recognition luncheon for all COPS members and their families.   Finally, they have provided general support services to the neighbors in the area to which they are assigned, ranging from trash pick-ups to encouragement of persons to move into their area.

Today
The Citizens on Patrol Program is making a positive impact on Fort Worth's quality of life.   Members help to deter crime by patrolling in their cars, on bicycles, and on foot patrol.

In 2013, Citizens on Patrol members helped to start the Code Blue at the School Program.   Volunteers would help keep our Fort Worth elementary schools safe by patrolling around the outside of campuses.

We have a program called Code Blue.  This program has volunteers that have police radios.  They patrol their neighborhoods and report what the see.  This program allows the volunteers to observe and report only.  The volunteers do not under any circumstances get involved.
If you want to reduce crime in the neighborhood this is the way to do it.  Each patroller will have a radio and signs on their car.  Most of the HOA's in Fort Worth have between 20 to 70 patrollers.  There is no age limit.  Most of the Code Blue patrollers are retired.
It is up to y'all.  If you want to join the program you can contact John Charles through this website.   This program really does reduce crime.  Criminals will not go into a neighborhood that is being patrolled.
If you are planning to take the Code Blue class you must call Cindy Strause to register

This would be great tool for your HOAs and Code Blue members.

Here is some great info to pass along to your HOAs, COP groups, Nextdoor.com groups, etc.   By placing their serial numbers on leadsonline.com it gets the property entered immediately, so if a burglar pawns it, it will immediately be identified as stolen property.   Instead of having to count on a police department employee to get the serial number from a report and entering it in the system.   It would be very beneficial to the Property crimes or any other investigative unit.

Register your property at reportit.leadsonline.com PDF

________________________________________

This is a great system...and we need to try to get our citizenry on board.   Citizens type in their serial numbers of property (totally secure online) and good descriptions and then if (God Forbid) their cars or houses get broken into we have the serial numbers already (please have them also take pictures of their jewelry as that is becoming a popular item to take and melt and we only have 14 days to find the stuff...   If schools or businesses want to record serial numbers in the same way there is a small charge...   If you have any questions please contact me.

Thank you,
