Hello Town Creek Residents! As you all know, the Crime Watch Patrol number changed to the new 2017 number on February 15. Please keep the new number in an easily accessible location and consider adding it to the contacts in your mobile phone.
For our new members, the phone carried by our Crime Watch Patrol Officers is capable of texting and receiving photos for real-time situation reports and descriptions. The Officers have found this means of communication to be another valuable tool. Calling will always be an option, but text messaging is another great way to get information to the officers quickly, and it is very easy for them to reference back to the information as needed.
