Information about the Constable Patrol Program: Cherryhurst has partnered with Mandell Place and Winlow Place to combat crime, forming the Mandell/Winlow Constable Patrol, which provides law enforcement officers dedicated to our area.
Since the Constable Patrol was implemented in 2015, we have seen a significant drop in crime in the Cherryhurst neighborhood. The benefits of subscription include:
- Reduced crime in the neighborhood since the inception of the Constable Patrol (criminals have moved to less-protected neighborhoods)
- First-responder for your alarm system (no need to wait for HPD)
- Faster response times
- “Vacation Watch” patrol services when you are away from your home
- Highly visible metal yard sign to warn that the home is patrolled by the Constable
- Car stickers to indicate that you are part of the program and that your car is protected, as is your home
- Home security inspections to find and reduce vulnerabilities and hazards - Monthly bulletins and updates regarding security and crime
- Assistance in becoming more proactive in enhancing your safety and security through special programs, classes and meetings, self-defense/rape prevention for women
The success of this anti-crime initiative is dependent upon the participation of Cherryhurst residents. Subscriptions to the Constable program have unfortunately dropped off because residents perceive that there is less crime and don’t see the advantage of continuing their support of the program, but less crime means the program is working! So tell your neighbors to subscribe! And the more subscribers we have, the cheaper the subscription will become!
Congratulations, Cherryhurst! We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded a commitment to funding from Ellen Cohen/District C for the Neighborhood Matching Grant Program. We will now work to get the matching funds raised, the signs manufactured and then installed before the June deadline. Stay tuned on next steps!
