B"H time for a community patrol... please someone with some available time organize one. ok - maybe would not help in a case like this but something like the guy getting robbed on central the other day also - the police need to PATROL not sit by park or by train mill road municipal lot chatting...

A community patrol might serve as a deterrent to a bank robbery though. Instead of something new, perhaps residents would be interested in joining the auxiliary police unit?

is there a way to join the NCPD aux and still keep status with NYPD aux?

so menachem, all your valid points being considered...can an officer on patrol as eagle eyed as many are around here see a note passed from a person to a teller in a bank? If the sharpest of cops can't spot that, how is an untrained "community patrol" going to see it. It's very easy to shift blame on the police after the fact...but the fact of the matter is that these crimes do occur, and more frequently than we ever knew prior to such media outlets as this one. Take NYC for instance, the NYPD and its Street Crime Unit made NYC one of the safest places in the nation. Aggressive and proactive policing brought crime levels down signifigantly. On the other side of the spectrum, yes..law abiding citizens are going to be stopped by police. I want to see all the comments on the patch when these "law abiding" citizens are stopped for the most minor infractions and cited more frequently. Violent crimes do occur locally and arrests are made for street robberies, guns and other violations more often than you think. Let detectives be detectives and this subject will be brought to justice shortly.
