The St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office is offering two crime prevention programs in June, according to Sheriff Ken J. Mascara: Citizens Observation Patrol and the Community Awareness Program.
“The Citizens Observation Patrol gives members of our community the opportunity to observe and report crime in neighborhoods or county parks,” Sheriff Mascara said. “The Sheriff's Office provides the vehicles, and Citizens Observation Patrol members volunteer their time to keep our community safe.”
Classes for Citizens Observation Patrol volunteers will take place June 12 – 15 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and Thursday from 1 to 5 p.m.
Those who want to become members or get more information are asked to call 871-5305.
That is also the number to call for those who want to attend the next Community Awareness Program class June 3 from 10 a.m. to noon at the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office, 4700 West Midway Road, Fort Pierce. The topic will be “Dangerous drugs and their impact on the community,” Sheriff Mascara said.
There will be seating for only 50 people, so those who want to attend are asked to call the Crime Prevention Unit, at 871-5303, to reserve a seat.
