    Oy crown heights . Is this what we need? How about shmira and shomrim uniting and becoming a strong force in the community.

    Good idea

    I hope it helps, I like the idea of having a specific route, it makes sure all areas are covered. However, what about the area Remsen to Rockaway, south of Utica/ENY? There are about 100 Jewish families in those few blocks. I don’t see that’s covered.

    very sad that it has to come to this, that regular resident of crown heights have to patrol the streets, it means and it shows clearly that the cops are not doing their job!!!

    JOKE:

    They should carry mace

    Then they can spray all attackers which will paralyze them till police come

    The risk to the resident who patrol who will back them if there is a incident and member fases arrest and court.
    The Rebbe spoke about hiring a armed security force that the answer. And is there not a cop program in 71?

    To patrol the streets in plain clothes as a civilian is a very stupid idea. So let me get this straight? You guys will see something then call 911 and wait around till the cops come and point in the direction of the perp? Or will you guys chase after them and get in trouble? i.e – shot at / stabbed / punched.. what type of physical training are these “patrols” going to get before they go out on the street? Sorry but I think this idea hasn’t been thought out at all.. Highly disagree. Leave it up to the… Read more »

    To #11 This is not against cops.

    What is the difference between someone walking down the street just because they have to go somewhere, and someone who has a radio or cellphone and is there to report any criminal or violent activity?
    How are they ***less*** safe, then if they were not part of a neighborhood watch?
    Also this is not saying anything against cops. But cops can’t be there all the time, as recent incidents have proven.

    I don’t think the idea of these patrols is for the people to take any action besides contacting their coordinators and their coordinators contacting 911 or Shomrim. I don’t believe that anyone patroling will be taking matters into their own hands. I think they will just be walking down the street, or in a car or sitting looking out their window like anyone else and if they see anything they have someone they can contact who will contact the right people. This is not a vigilante force.
