I’m needing your help once again this grant year.  We’re trying to justify our existence as usual and we also have some items we’ve purchased that we’d like to go to folks who actually turn in PNP hours

Would it be possible to get a listing like last year with folks in 900 (Cactus Park) who lave logged hours and how many were logged to date in 2020?

I have the doc you sent last year for reference.  (At least I think it’s the one).

Also….  I try to put the PNP City Wide agenda’s on the PNP members website but have not seen one yet.  (Unless I bungled things and deleted it).  Can you forward it to me?

Thanks !!

Talk to you soon.

CPCA October Community Meeting on ZOOM

Thanks to those who joined us for our October 28 meeting. Andrea Gaston from Council District 1 (Thelda Williams) provided valuable information regarding happenings in the District. The city needs your help determining the future of our bus system and urges you to attend a virtual (on-line) meeting the evening of November 11. You can find details on our Calendar Entry for this meeting. Our guest speaker this evening was Joan Campbell from the Maricopa County Attorney's Office who spoke to us about Scams. This type of criminal activity is even more prevalent during the Pandemic but these scammers are always trying to get their hands on our money, pandemic or not.

This is a text editor added to mess around with.

This is the CPCA Test Page

Hi, I’d like your opinion on the logo below.  Will something like this work for both CPCA and PNP grants?  For example if this appears on promo Pens or perhaps a different item, can I use this for either the CPCA or the PNP grants?

(That way I don’t need separate images and can just use one).

Thanks !!

What does ‘PNP’ Mean?

PNP stands for “Phoenix Neighborhood Patrol” which are our members who have participated in a half-day training by Phoenix PD.

What do PNP Members do?

PNP Members watch out for their neighborhoods by knowing what is usual and what is unusual.  They are watchful while walking the dog or just taking a walk, riding their bike or simply driving through their neighborhood.  You are encouraged to know your neighbors and immediate area.    That car that has been parked a couple houses down.  Does it belong to a resident?  How about the people sitting in it for the past half-hour.  Is that unusual or suspicious?  How about the repairman parked in front of your neighbor’s house 3 doors down that you know are in California?

I’m a busy person without a lot of free time.  How much time will be required for patrols, data recording, or other activities if I become a PNP member?

You dedicate whatever time you feel comfortable.  Once you are trained, others may ask that you accompany them on a patrol.  There is no minimum requirement for time you must dedicate to the program.  No one will inquire of the time you have spent that is dedicated to PNP.  We hope that you will dedicate at least some time each month making your neighborhood a safer place for all.

How do I go about becoming a PNP member so that I can help patrol my neighborhood?

You must attend a half-day training session administered by the Phoenix Police Department.  A link to the training schedule, location, and other basic information can be found HERE.

How much is it going to cost me to be a PNP member?  Are there things I will be expected to purchase?  Are there things that PNP members typically purchase to assist with their patrols even though it isn’t a stated requirement?

The only cost to become a PNP member is the 4 hours you will spend in the initial training.  A PNP t-shirt which is required to be worn while on patrol will be provided to you upon completion of training.  If you use your personal vehicle for patrolling, identifying signs or flags should be used.  These are available for purchase.  Some neighborhood organizations can assist you to obtain them.

When and where are the city-wide PNP meetings held?

There is a monthly meeting for all PNP members (this meeting is NOT mandatory) held the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6:30PM in the Mountain View Precinct Community Room.

Training downtown for Stan and John starts in:
