Why doesn’t the Patrol operate 24 hours per day?

  • We don’t have enough members to fund that many hours. It would require more than 1500 members to fund a 24/7 operation, and our membership is currently ~375.
  • Membership isn’t at 1500 because we have not been able to contact everyone in the catchment area. We need a company or experienced people to launch a membership campaign and we only have seven member volunteers serving on the current DHP board. 
  • Here's where you could help increase patrol hours! Recruit your next-door neighbors, and we can provide helpful materials and information. We welcome member participation, need all kinds of skills and invite you to help. If you would like to do your part, just send an email to [email protected] telling us how you’d like to be involved.
