How the Rank Security Patrol Works in the CANA area
From the Desk of the CEO Dear Patrol Service Clients,
the time we have been offering our patrols in the College Area
Neighborhood Alliance (CANA), we have seen a continuous increase in the
number of calls requesting service. This increase is directly related to
an increased attentiveness by CANA residents to unusual vehicle and
foot traffic in their streets and alleys. Reporting suspicious persons
and vehicles creates the first line of defense in deterring criminal
activity. It sends a message to those looking to commit crimes that they
are being watched.
On occasion, I get calls from clients saying
that they have not seen our patrol vehicles in their area. In accordance
with our original discussions with CANA, we made the commitment to
furnish patrols 40 hours per week for the first 200 service subscribers.
In good faith, we began providing service with substantially fewer than
200 subscribers and have maintained our commitment.
schedule attempts to direct our activities during the hours when the
majority of crimes occur. To do this, we vary the hours with earlier
start times two or three days per week. On other days, we generally
start between 6:00 PM and 8:00 PM. As you can presume, this is somewhat
of a balancing act, but it is our way of trying to maximize the benefits
of our service and keep criminal perpetrators uncertain about when we
will be patrolling. Because you don't see the patrol vehicles, doesn't
mean they are not out there.
The patrol has increased
to seven days per week, eight hrs. a day. For every 200 additional CANA subscribers,
we can add an additional full-time position. Encouraging your neighbors
to subscribe to our service will directly affect the hours we can patrol
Besides providing regular patrol services to the College neighborhood, service subscribers receive these additional services:
A residence security assessment, by request
Residence checks while you are away or on vacation
First responder services coordinated with your burglar alarm provider
Welfare checks for family members that may be staying at your home
have been working hard on our communication by regularly attending CANA
meetings and events. We are in the process of developing other methods
of keeping our subscribers informed of our progress and activities. We
welcome your input on how we can improve our communication with you, the
client, and continue to promote the security program. My gratitude goes
out to all of the CANA Security Committee members who are committed to
promoting security and contacting the members of your community. If you
see our patrol officer, we encourage you to stop him and introduce
yourself. -Steve Rank-
