Expanded Neighborhood Patrol (ENP) is a program created by the City of Dallas that allows neighborhoods to employ off-duty police officers to supplement standard patrol hours.
These regular Dallas Police Department (DPD) officers are armed, trained to make arrests, issue citations, etc., and they will patrol in a DPD official police car. The police car is equipped with computers allowing the officers to check for outstanding warrants, stolen cars and other violations instantaneously.
Contributions to the ENP Program are critical to ensure that we can allocate funds toward our total budgeted patrol hours for the year. The number of patrol hours is directly related to the number of paid ENP members, so the more member participation the more police presence. Those who support ENP also enjoy several benefits only available to ENP members.
The Dallas Police maintain a site where residents can view the latest crime statistics for their area: www.dallaspolice.net

Volunteers in patrol (VIP) program
Got a car and a pair of eyes? We need you! This is a group of LHENA Volunteers who patrol in their cars and report anything suspicious to 9-1-1 and 3-1-1. This is a non confrontational group and does not carry weapons. Members choose the time and days they can volunteer. Members must first complete a background check and VIP training through the Dallas Police Department in order to participate. A VIP group is the number one thing a neighborhood can do to help control crime. If you are interested in joining or for more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
