WICKENBURG CITIZEN’S PATROL
The Wickenburg Citizen's Patrol is a volunteer branch of the Wickenburg Police Department. The Citizen's Patrol is made up of community members with a volunteer spirit. The members of the Citizen's Patrol conduct vacation watches on homes. Vacation watches are security checks on those homes whose occupants are vacationing. Citizen's Patrol members also install and maintain the Medical Alert Program. The M.A.P. allows people who with medical problems to live alone with the benefit of a notification device that can contact the Wickenburg Police Dispatch if a medical necessity arises. The Dispatch Center then dispatches an officer for a welfare check of the individual. Citizen's Patrol members also assist the Wickenburg Police Department by helping with traffic during high volume events, such as Gold Rush Days.
