FOR YOUR PEACE OF MIND
The Northaven Park Patrol Service (NPPS) is an Expanded Neighborhood Patrol (ENP) service that serves the residents of the Northaven Park neighborhood. This is the area located between Marsh Lane and Midway Rd and between Forest Lane and Royal Lane. This area includes the popular Disney Streets.
The Expanded Neighborhood Patrol (ENP) is a program provided by the Dallas Police Department where off-duty police officers are engaged and paid by the residents to patrol the neighborhood. NPPS provides an extra level of security and crime prevention that many residents want. This service is described in more detail elsewhere on this website. In mid- 2010, there were about 75 neighborhoods in the Dallas area that were using this ENP service to increase security for their residents. It has been reported that this number has increased significantly.
NPPS provides increased Dallas Police protection to the Northaven Park neighborhood and improved police response time, especially during the times of the day when crime is potentially the highest. In addition to the routine daily patrol, the NPPS offers home perimeter checks when residents are on vacation, and access directly to the officer on duty to ask for an escort service to your home if you are ever followed or something just doesn't look right at your home.
We launched the patrol service on December 1, 2011, with coverage 7 days a week.
We started off with an average of 12 patrolling hours a day, and with HomeCheck, a
home watch service available for people on vacation. The specific number of hours
of coverage on any given day will be based on recommendations from the police,
with an average of 12 hours a day during December.
Our Fall Membership and Business Meeting was held Thursday evening November 15 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm at Midway Hills Christian Church at 11001 Midway Road.
*** The Spring NPPS Meeting will be held in April. Watch for the exact date and agenda. ***
