Help Us Keep YOUR Neighborhood Safe in 2016!

2015 CSF

As we celebrate our 10th Anniversary and our 50th new volunteer training class on Saturday January 23rd, we’d love to invite you to join us for the training class as a new CCOP Patroller.

Our Patrollers come from all walks of life, and from all over the Bay Area. They span ages from early twenties to mid sixties, and all are asked to simply commit to a single three hour patrol each month which they can self-schedule through our on-line calendar system.

Many Patrollers choose to patrol more than the minimum we ask for, as they recognize the value in what we accomplilsh, but all we ask is one patrol per month.

Patrols are always made up of at least three volunteers who walk the neighborhood in a random pattern determined by the team lead on the evening. Our most typical activities when on patrol is offering directions to visitors, providing safety advice to residents, offering city services to homeless individuals and calling ambulances for intoxicated and injured individuals.

We do occasionally deal with violent incidents or thefts, but our role is simply to observe and report to the professional responders for the most part. In ten years of service we have never had a Patroller injury, but we have undoubtedly saved a few lives.

Train as a Castro Patrol volunteer during our next training class:

Pre-registration is required. All training takes place within the Castro district.
