Our best tool is the Expanded Neighborhood Patrol (ENP), which allows the Midway Hollow Crime Watch to hire the Dallas Police Department for dedicated, extra patrols exclusive to our neighborhood. During these patrol hours, Dallas Police Officers will safeguard Midway Hollow only, and will not take calls outside of our boundaries. Our officers will also respond immediately to 911 calls and home burglary alarms in Midway Hollow. Before Midway Hollow participated in the ENP program just a few years ago, we would have as many as 50 offenses each month in our neighborhood. Today, we average 7 or fewer offenses. We also see significant drops in crime each time we’re able to raise the number of weekly ENP hours.
Our goal is to purchase 80 dedicated patrol hours per week, however, the number of hours that we are able to purchase depends on the number of paying Midway Hollow Crime Watch members we consistently maintain each membership session. Over 96% of the dues we collect goes directly to purchasing additional patrol hours from the Dallas Police Department.
Midway Hollow Crime Watch dues are only $150 per 6-month billing period ($112.50 for seniors 65+). That’s just 82 cents per day! Our billing periods are April 1st – September 30th, and October 1st – March 31st, but you can join at any time!
