Orange Hat Photo
Hi Neighbors, it’s time to dust off your orange hats and come join in some fun! We will kicking off our Orange Hat Patrol (OHP) neighborhood walks beginning on March and continuing on the last Thursday of each month through October.
Our meeting time/point will be 7 pm at the triangle park just across from the Saint Benedict the Moor Catholic Church and School on 21st St NE and Oklahoma Ave NE.

For your planning purposes, OHP walks will be on the last Thursday of each month (Mar – October). 27 Mar, 24 Apr, 29 May, 26 Jun, 31 Jul, 28 Aug, 25 Sep & 30 Oct. Bring yourself, bring your family and/or bring your dogs…great weather, great fun and great exercise!
Being a part of OHP is a great opportunity to get out and meet your neighbors/local patrol officers and also sends a big signal that “We Care” about our neighborhood.

FOKP Orange Hat Patrol Mission: Educate the community on neighborhood safety and security, reduce criminal activity, and help provide a safer place to live…”We Care!”

– Discourages Criminals
In some cases, the presence of a Neighborhood Watch in a community is enough to deter potential burglars from stealing from nearby homes. Most burglars take advantage of opportunities where they are able to act undetected. By having a watch program, a burglar will have less of a chance of being able to steal from a home without getting caught.
– Protects Your Home
Besides helping to monitor your neighborhood for burglars, you are also helping to increase the security level of your own home. It’s a proven fact that a Neighborhood Watch program helps to lower crime rates in a community, which subsequently decreases the chance that your own home will be the target for a criminal.

– Get to Know Your Community
Being a part of a Neighborhood Watch program is a great way to become better acquainted with the members of your community. By knowing the people in your neighborhood, there is a better chance that they will go out of their way to help monitor your home’s security.

– Aids Your Local Police Force
Having a Neighborhood Watch program in a residential area helps to take some of the surveillance burden off of the local police force. Because of this, it also helps to increase the ability of the police to quickly respond to crimes. In most cases, a police officer will volunteer to attend local Neighborhood Watch meetings, in order to provide helpful information about how to protect your community from criminals.
