West frankford Town Watch

With all the crime news lately, it does bring to mind the folks who are working on our side.  The West Frankford Town Watch is looking for new members.  I got this email this afternoon:

  HELLO

  LET US INTRODUCE OURSELVES

 

*** WHO ARE WE?

WE ARE THE WEST FRANKFORD TOWNWATCH. WE HAVE SERVED THE WEST FRANKFORD COMMUNITY FOR 5 YEARS.  WE ARE LOOKING FOR NEW MEMBERS. WE PATROL  EVERY FRIDAY AND SOME SATURDAY NIGHTS. WE COVER ALL OF UPPER FRANKFORD, NORTH WOOD, MAYFAIR, AND PARTS OF WISSINOMING.

 

*** WHAT DO WE DO?

WE ARE THE EYES AND EARS OF THE POLICE. WE PATROL THE COMMUNITY BY CAR, FOOT AND ON BIKE. WE LOOK FOR POSSIBLE TROUBLE SPOTS, CHECK FOR BROKEN TRAFFIC LIGHTS, AND REPORT UNSAFE AND DANGEROUS NEIGHBORHOOD SITUATIONS. IN ADDITION, REPORT ABANDONED AUTOS. IN ADDITION, RESPOND TO CALLS ALONG WITH THE POLICE THAT COME OVER THE POLICE SCANNER. BASICALLY, WE TRY TO MAINTAIN THE QUALITY OF LIFE IN OUR COMMUITY.

  

WHAT ARE SOME OF OUR OTHER ACTIVITIES?

WE WORK AS SECURITY AND TRAFFIC CONTROL AT MANY OF OUR COMMUNITY EVENTS, FIRES AND AUTO ACCIDENTS. WE ALSO PATROL AROUND THE LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL AND GRADE SCHOOL’S DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR WHILE SCHOOL IS IN LOOKING FOR GROUPS OF STUDENT’S THAT ARE EITHER CUTTING OR DON’T BELONG THERE.

 

WHAT ELSE HAPPENS?

WE HAVE A LUNCHEON ONCE A YEAR FOR THE OFFICERS THAT WE PATROL WITH TO SHOW THEM YOUR THANKS FOR KEEPING OUR COMMUNITY SAFE.

WE ALSO WORK WITH OTHER COMMUNITY GROUPS TO TRY AND ADDRESS THEIR TROUBLE SPOTS WITHIN THE SURROUNDING COMMUNITIES.

 

                                    **** WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP? ***

 WE NEED YOUR DONATIONS TO HELP KEEP OUR TOWNWATCH GROWING AND ACTIVE. ANYTHING YOU CAN GIVE IS GREATLY APPRECIATED.

REMEMBER, WE ARE ALL VOLUNTEERS AND ALL DONATIONS ARE USED ONLY FOR THE TOWNWATCH OFFICIAL ACTIVITIES
