Studies and statistics prove having a community courtesy patrol, ot even a sheriff-sponsored Crime Watch Patrol, makes a dramatic difference in reducing unwanted activity and crime! The truth is simply criminals do not want to be seen - even if it's just while walking around "casing" the neighborhood. Residents walking around is fine, but covers a limited area. Motor patrols increase patrol coverage and minimizes the chance for criminals to be lurking around - seeing a patrol car usually gets their attention and sends them away. Contact your county sheriff''s office for more information on a crime prevention program for your community!
