MENIFEE – The Menifee Police Department is hosting a Crime Watch recruiting event to answer questions and register community members interested in volunteering to participate. The event is scheduled Saturday, April 22, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Countryside Market Place (next to the Menifee Breakfast Club), on the corner of Newport and Haun Roads.
“Crime Watch volunteers are the eyes and ears of Menifee’s Police Department and can help deter crime by patrolling throughout Menifee,” said Lieutenant Greg Fellows.
Crime Watch is an “observe and report” position only and volunteers do not get involved in enforcement.
Crime Watch Volunteers are trained to assist with high-visibility patrols, house checks for residents on vacation, DUI checkpoint support, community event support and crime scene and traffic collision response.
Volunteers must be at least 18 years old and typically work three-hour shifts Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
