Our neighborhood has seen a bit of a surge in crime recently. There was a string of carjackings and robberies. And many cars and businesses in and around the Bishop Arts District have been burglarized.
Here’s an opportunity to get involved with crime-fighting in certain North Oak Cliff neighborhoods.
The North Oak Cliff United Police Patrol has an informational meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 26 at Turner House.
The patrol provides expanded police patrol in East Kessler, Kessler Park, Winnetka Heights, West Kessler and Stevens Park Village.
Participants pay $182.50 for six months or $365 a year, which results in at least 100 hours of patrolling in the area every week. Members also can get patrol officers to check on their homes while they’re out of town.
