The Northeast Substation of the Dallas Police Department is holding its next Volunteer in Patrol (VIP) training class on Dec. 5. The event is online from 9 a.m-1 p.m. The VIP program allows citizens to have an active part in combating crime in their patrol area. VIPs supplement detection and reporting of suspicious persons and activities to the police department. VIP patrols show a presence of law-abiding citizens on the streets throughout the City of Dallas. Northeast currently has more than 1000 VIPs and is growing stronger. To request an application, email Senior Corporal Kevin Kelley at Kevin.Kelley@Dallascityhall.com or call 214-670-7772 for more information.
