StonewallStonewallStonewallWHAT DOES YOUR ORGANIZATION DO? The Stonewall Citizens' Patrol is a volunteer neighborhood watch patrol group operating in the highly diverse Hillcrest, North Park and University Heights areas of San Diego. Our volunteers receive training from the San Diego Police Department and take turns patrolling the streets. In addition to patrolling, the organization focuses on crime awareness and crime prevention which includes distributing safety whistles, crime prevention posters, and safety tip cards. Our volunteers conduct themselves with a "hands-off" approach and do not carry weapons. We are merely additional “eyes and ears” for the San Diego Police Department. HOW MANY PEOPLE DO YOU SERVE? We serve all citizens of Hillcrest, University Heights, and North Park. WHAT ARE YOUR MAJOR ANNUAL ACTIVITIES? Assisting with the SD Pride Festival, Nightmare on Normal Street, assisting, security with the GLSEN event at the Center, volunteering with the US Police and Fire Championships, providing safety coverage for the Transgender Day of Remembrance and the San Diego Remembers Matthew Shepard Event.
