Henrico Citizen Staff Reports 12/02/10
Weekend holiday shoppers at several Henrico shopping malls are under the watchful eyes of ACT NOW (Awareness of Crime Today-Neighbors on Watch) volunteers, who are assisting police with their holiday crime prevention efforts.
The program is a partnership between Henrico County Neighborhood Watch, the Division of Police, Division of Police volunteers and the malls. It began Nov. 27 and will continue every Friday and Saturday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. until Dec. 18.
The volunteers, dressed in maroon vests and equipped with cell phones, patrol participating Henrico mall parking lots and shopping areas.
In addition to heightening awareness of holiday crime prevention, ACT NOW volunteers facilitate interest in Henrico County's Neighborhood Watch program and distribute holiday safety flyers and information regarding other Division of Police crime prevention programs.
