Nelson Community Patrol consists of Nelson residents of all ages, who want to help the police in keeping our town safe from crime. Volunteers work together with the police in a non-confrontational manner, as their ‘eyes and ears’.
NCP volunteers attend police briefings before going out on patrol and have a police radio in the vehicle. Patrols are carried out by pairs of volunteers who do not leave the car. Anything suspicious is reported by radio to the police who then direct police patrols to the incident.
