Security Patrol Initiative
When you join the PPCA, a portion of your membership dues goes toward the Security Fund and helps cover the costs associated with our Security Patrol. The PPCA usually has around 300 residents join as members each year, and the income generated from these memberships allows us to provide approximately 40 hours of patrol coverage per month.
We utilize off-duty APD police officers for our Security Patrol. Here are a few of the benefits associated with using off-duty police officers:
action on the spot
Our security patrol officers can take action on the spot...meaning that they write tickets, make arrests, etc. and aren't relegated to calling 911 if/when something happens.
Our security patrol officers have the ability to drive APD vehicles, making it extremely obvious that there is a police presence in our neighborhood.
one call, that's all
Our security patrol officers can use their APD radios to run license plate numbers as well as request back-up when necessary.
Our fundraising efforts are focused on donations to cover security within our neighborhood.
