Urgent Notice from the University District Patrol

As was announced to current paid members, our patrol is currently


Due to a sudden policy change at Securitas, the company that provides the patrol guards for University District Patrol (UDP), they will no longer provide service while we have an outstanding balance due. The patrol operates eight hours each night, seven days per week. It has been in service for the last 40 years. Despite declining membership and a general lack of support in the neighborhood we have attempted to reduce our debt AND maintain as many hours of patrol as possible resulting in a negative balance of $10,900.

Special Assessment District funding is delayed until 2021. Meanwhile, our UDP membership drive continues but we cannot resume the patrol without more subscribers and immediate donations from both subscribers and nonsubscribers. Historically neighbors and members have made donations in addition to their subscriptions in amounts ranging from $50 - $1,000. UDP has also benefited from several grants.

Please Donate to the Patrol so we can resume service as soon as possible. Any donation will help.

Your Donation will help:

· Eliminate our Debt

· Restore Nightly Security Patrol

· Restore on-call escort service, while entering or leaving your home

· Restore Alarm Response and Verification

· Restore Vacation and Vacant Home Watches

· Restore Nightly locking of Belden and Gesu Parks
