Reason 3: The Druid Hills Patrol offers REAL police coverage.
2. The officers always wear their uniforms while patrolling, and though they usually patrol in the Druid Hills Patrol vehicle, they may use a police car or their own vehicles as circumstances merit.
3. "Patrolling" means driving slowly through the neighborhood, watching for suspicious activity and creating a visible police presence. It also means stopping to get out of the vehicle to take a closer look at questionable circumstances or people.
4. Patrol officers complete vacation patrol visits to verify the security of members’ homes and outbuildings while members are away. Officers document their visits via the DHP iPhone app and may take pictures to record conditions at members’ homes. They will also perform security assessments of members’ homes and property.
5. Through a members-only login, members can review ride reports and officers blogs to monitor the officers’ activities and crimes reported in the DHP catchment area. They may also make a “special attention request” for extra security coverage.
