Citizens on Patrol get new crime fighting tools

Posted: Updated:

They've stopped crime in progress, and they are never far away when gun shots ring out.  They even have uniforms, but they can not make an arrest.

Citizens on Patrol monitor and report any illegal activity in Woodlawn.

Volunteers received new crime fighting tools Monday morning.  They will use two new cars to monitor and patrol their community.

Police Chief A.C. Roper and Birmingham Mayor William Bell both say the cars will be useful in combating crime.  People can expect to see the vehicles on the road by the end of the month.

The Citizens on Patrol program has been so successful, Bell wants to see it become a city-wide initiative.
