Dallas Police are shorthanded when it comes to officers and dispatchers, according to The Dallas Morning News. Volunteers In Patrol (VIP) is a community program that allows residents to lend a hand and assist these hardworking heroes by keeping an eye on the neighborhood.
After four hours of training, VIPs are certified by the department and able to get to work. The next training at our neighborhood’s Northeast Division, 9915 E. Northwest Highway, is set for July 31-Aug. 1 from 7-9 p.m. Those who would like to join must fill out an application (available here) and return it by July 25.
For more information, contact Officer Kelley at 214.670.7772.
