Volunteers-in-Patrol is a volunteer program with the Dallas Police Department that helps make our neighborhoods and community safer and better. You must have a good driving record, successfully complete a background check, and take the training presented by the Dallas Police Department. When you complete the training, you will be paired with an experienced volunteer to drive your neighborhood several times a month, reporting suspicious activity, potential dangers to residents, graffiti and code violations. For an application, call John Childress at 214-324-3778 or call/email Sr. Cpl. Ron Carpenter at 214-670-4415. We need volunteers!
