What is V.I.P? (Volunteers in Patrol)
- A non-confrontational neighborhood program designed to reduce crime through a cooperation between citizens and the Dallas Police Department (D.P.D).
- Citizens volunteering their time and driving their own vehicles - or walking - patrol their neighborhoods.
- Volunteers receive 7 hours training provided by D.P.D. on recognizing suspicious activity and how to report it.
- Allows citizens to take an active role in crime prevention by becoming the eyes and ears for D.P.D.
We are now seeking to add more VIP members! For more information about the University Meadows VIP program, email UMNADallas@gmail.com
