WHAT OUR NPO REALLY DOES
The following text is quoted verbatim from the Fort Worth West COPS webpage entitled "npo impact on neighborhood" as that page appeared on June 1, 2014. To access the page directly, click the following link: NPO Impact.
CALL 9-1-1 TO REPORT CRIMES IN PROGRESS OR OTHER EMERGENCIES
PLEASE NOTE: Report emergencies immediately and directly by calling 9-1-1. Do not call our NPO, the Association's Security Committee, or the Crestwood Crime Patrol to address emergencies. Our NPO works under the direction of the Fort Worth Police Department, supports many neighborhoods, and is not on call to respond to requests for emergency action. Residents must call 9-1-1 directly to get a police response. For more information about emergency and non-emergency reports to the Police, please click the following link: Emergencies Call 911.
Your neighborhood Police Officer (NPO) is assigned to your specific neighborhood area.
NPOs have a very unique impact on the neighborhood. The quality of life in a neighborhood is dependent on the working relationship between the residents, businesses and the NPO.
The NPOs are not required to answer normal calls for service. They focus on crime resolution and prevention within their area. The NPO addresses crime on a focused basis, identifies problems before they escalate and works with the Citizens on Patrol who are the extended eyes and ears of the NPO. Your NPO becomes accutely aware of situations and behaviors that many in the neighborhood never notice.
Contrary to what is heard from some neighbors, your NPO is not your personal Police Officer. He works varied hours to catch criminals and reduce crime.
Next time you wonder who is watching the neighborhood, ask yourself "What am I doing for my neighborhood?"
