COLERAIN TWP. (FOX19) - The Colerain Police Department's "Citizens on Patrol" will patrol Northgate Mall during the holiday shopping season beginning Friday.
The volunteers will patrol the mall until New Year's Eve. This is the 14th year of patrolling during the holidays at Northgate Mall.
The Citizens on Patrol is made up of volunteers that graduated from the Police Departments Citizens Police Academy. The volunteers who patrol the mall come from a group of more than 500 Academy graduates.
The volunteers will patrol in teams of three or four people. While they have no law enforcement authority, they provide additional "eyes and ears" for the police and Northgate Mall.
The Citizens on Patrol will patrol to observe and report suspicious and criminal activity to the appropriate agency. The Colerain Police and volunteers are working in partnership to make this Holiday season safe.
