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.

Home Security Habits Checklist

 Kingman Park,
Below is an important safety list that everyone can use. With the recent crimes in our community, taking precaution is key to protecting you and your family.
Kevin Stephens, Orange Hat Coordinator
 
Do you lock up?
1.      Are your doors locked whether you are in the house or not?
2.      Is your front door locked while you are in the back yard (and vice versa)?
 3.     Do you lock your doors when you leave the house for even a few minutes?
4.      Do you pin your windows? Are they locked when closed?
5.      Are your basement windows locked or permanently secured with screws
 or bars?
6.      Do you keep your garage doors closed and locked at all times?
 
Does your home look occupied?
1.      When you are gone for the evening, do you leave an outdoor and an indoor light on?
2.      Do you leave a radio or TV on when your home is not occupied?
3.      When you go on vacation do you have someone watch your house? move drapes, shades, and blinds? mow the lawn/shovel snow? collect mail  and newspapers?
 
Do you practice yard security?
1.      Do you keep valuables such as bicycles and lawn equipment locked up and out of sight?
2.      Do you lock up tools and ladders after you use them?
3.      Do you keep shrubbery and bushes well-trimmed?
4.      If you have a fence, can your neighbors see through it or over it?
5.      If you have exterior lights, do they prevent shadows where burglars could hide at night?
6.      Do you have lights on dusk to dawn at entrances?
 
Do you practice overall security?
1.      Do you have a block contact list with neighbors’ names, phone numbers, and addresses by your phone?
2.      Do you know how to report suspicious activity or crimes to the police? Do your children know how to report?
3.      Do you ask strangers at your door for proper identification before talking to them?
4.      Do your children tell strangers that you’re “busy” rather than you’re “not home”?
5.      If someone came to the door needing help, would you make the phone call to the police (or other necessary calls) rather than letting the person come in?
AUTOMOBILE
1.      Keep your doors locked at all times
2.      Don’t leave expensive items unattended in your car for any amount of time
3.      Keep the inside of your car clean and clutter free so thieves don’t have a reason to want to break in
4.      Most thieves are opportunists so don’t give them an opportunity!
Must Do’s for Everyone!
1.      Call 911 if you see or hear something suspicious
2.      Report tag numbers of suspicious vehicles in your neighborhood
3.      Report suspicious people hanging around the neighborhood without purpose

Orange Hat Patrol: Wed. Oct. 3, 2012 @7pm- Last Orange Hat for the year!

ORANGE HAT PATROL

“WE CARE”

Please join us on Wednesday, October 3, 2012 @ 7:00pm-8:00pm

This is our last Orange Hat Patrol for the year!

Meeting Place: Triangle Panda Park @ Oklahoma Ave NE and D Street NE.

Volunteer just 1 hour of your time to show unity in the Community for the Orange Hat Patrol partnered with Metropolitan Police Department! We will organize to patrol our streets and neighborhood trouble spots to prevent suspicious activities, call in broken street lamps, and report many other problems.

It would be especially helpful to have dog owners who don’t mind hitting the streets with their ferocious-looking (but otherwise well-behaved) pets to join the patrol.
