UPDATE! Please click here for a first year update on the Cops Walking a Beat Program.
On Friday, Nov. 25th, 2016 off-duty police officers began walking a beat around the Holly Hills neighborhood. The officers were privately funded by two concerned residents for a pilot period of two months. The officers are actively walking the streets and alleys, walking in a pair four days per week for four hour shifts at various times throughout the day and night. This initiative has been dubbed “Cops Walking a Beat” and in an effort to sustain this program Holly Hills resident Steve Butz is asking residents to voluntarily donate $20 per month to keep this effort going. The current footprint of these patrols is Loughborough to the south, Morganford to the west, Bates to the north, and Grand to the east. A similar program is being launched in the Carondelet neighborhood. For more info on the “Cops Walking a Beat” program please click here to contact Steve Butz.
