Mileage We Cover

Our CWTW patrol area includes a total of 50 blocks in West Mt. Airy, between Lincoln Drive, Allens Lane, Wissahickon Avenue, and Hortter Street.  You can see this area on the Patrol Map.  (Several other groups are also on watch around the edges of our zone.)

Our patrollers go out on random days to monitor those blocks for signs of unusual, unsavory activity on foot, on bikes, and by car.  A typical walking patroller covers some three miles or more each hour.  Patrollers can cover more distance on wheels – even check every block of the area – and they even go outside our perimeter to Upsal and Carpenter Lane stations to see that neighbors are getting home safely from the train.

Before receiving an ID card from Town Watch Integrated Services, all our patrollers are trained.  A few days each month patrollers may bring along their teen-age child (also trained for the task) and on other days dogs are welcome to patrol.  Each team is equipped with glowing vests and a radio to communicate what they observe and to coordinate their coverage with other patrollers.
