Citizens On Patrol ...
The Mountain Home
Citizens On Patrol started with just four members in
1994 and in time grew to as many as forty. While membership numbers
may fluctuate, the program is still able to get patrols out to
assist as additional eyes and ears for the police and in our
community. Currently, the Mountain Home
Citizens On Patrol has five marked cars equipped with
two way radio and top lights so that they can assist with traffic
control, funeral escorts, assist air ambulance service, vacation
watch request and other details as directed.
