Citizens on Patrol is a group of volunteers, your White Lake Hills neighbors, trained to patrol our neighborhood, observe, report and document suspicious activities. We patrol in order to help deter crime and keep WLH a safe neighborhood to live in.
Currently, White Lake Hills has 24 members who patrol in vehicles, on bikes, or while walking the neighborhood. We can use your help!
WLH C.O.P. Co-Captains are Kris Lewis & Bill Bowman, who live on Green River Trail.
“Night Out” events are designed to:
The most important thing about “Night Out” is the opportunity to socialize with your neighbors & discuss ways to make your home, your block, or your area of the neighborhood more secure.
Next year, please consider hosting a National Night Out event at your house in your yard, driveway, around the pool, etc.
