The Avondale Estates Police Department plans to offer a one-day training class on Saturday, May 18, for citizens who want to become part of the city’s Citizen Patrol Program.

“Now in its fourth year, the program is a mobile neighborhood watch made up of citizen-volunteers who serve as extra eyes and ears for the AEPD,” the announcement from the Police Department says. “It is modeled after chapters around the country that have successfully lowered crime rates in their neighborhoods. To be eligible for the training class and Citizens on Patrol program, residents must be 21 years or older and pass a criminal background check.”

People who want more information can contact Matt Miller at citizenpatrol@att.net.

“Applications, which can be picked up at City Hall or downloaded here, must be returned no later than 5 p.m. on Friday, May 10,” the announcement from the city says.
