Citizens on Patrol

The mission of Brandenburg Citizens On Patrol is to enhance the individual and collective safety and general welfare of all people of the City of Brandenburg by assisting the Brandenburg Police Department in deterring crime in Brandenburg. The primary method used to deter crime will be to provide high visibility patrol within the City.

The program consists of volunteers from Brandenburg who donate their time to patrol the City of Brandenburg. The object of the program is to enhance and support the Police Department by freeing up officers for higher priority duties. It also provides more eyes and ears on the streets observing and reporting crime and/or suspicious activity.

Program guidelines prohibit volunteers from actions that would place them in a confrontational situation. Radios and a cellular telephone on which to call in incidents needing police attention will be supplied along with vehicles. Corporate sponsors and private individuals support the program to help pay for cellular phones, radios, vehicles, miscellaneous equipment and distinctive clothing.

Participants will volunteer a minimum of 8 hours per month. Each participant must document his/her activities during patrol and his/her volunteer hours and this information is forwarded to the Brandenburg Police Department.

"The first 3 hours are the most crucial..."

When a child is reported missing, time is our greatest enemy. A study by the Washington State Attorney General's Office indicates that in 74 percent of the most tragic cases, missing-child homicides, the child is killed within the first 3 hours.

With this in mind, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® (NCMEC) launched LOCATER™, a web-based program that enhances law enforcement's ability to recover missing children by providing them with the tools necessary to rapidly disseminate images and information locally, statewide, or nationwide. LOCATER is available to any law-enforcement agency free of charge.

LOCATER is a web-based poster-creation program that provides law enforcement agencies with access to create and distribute their own posters to include Missing Children, Missing Adults, AMBER Alert, Wanted, Crime Alert, and other additional titles. The program allows agencies to distribute posters electronically and transmit the information to other agencies, media outlets, and the general public via Email distribution. Law enforcement agencies are also provided access to LOCATER WebMail to use to communicate with all LOCATER users nationwide.

How Does It Work? LOCATER provides LEA's with access to create and distribute posters to other agencies, media outlets and the public via E-Mail, Fax or Print Distribution.
