CRIME LOWER IN RESERVATION

Your Reservation Crime Watch Patrol is still working hard to keep our neighborhood safer.

The Reservation area had no major crimes during July. During the month, the Reservation CWP’s 28 members had 49.8 hours of patrol time by 19 people,with Kim Stadelman logging the most patrol hours. During the month, we added three new CWP members — Zes and Mary Scott, and Ross Walker.

The Richardson Police Department has announced that the overall crime in Richardson was down during the first 6 months of 2010, and also noted that crime in areas with active Homeowners Association areas is 50% lower than crime in the non-HOA areas. Furthermore, the crime in HOA areas with Crime Watch Patrols — like the Reservation — is only 25% of the levels of crime in non-HOA areas.

Reservation HOA President Darrell Day said that if you’re interested in joining the Reservation Crime Watch Patrol and helping keep our neighborhood safe, the next CWP training class is on Aug. 23-24.
