Please let us know if you can spare a couple hours a week or month to help protect Harvest Hills South. We have people who can partner with you if needed. We have lost several patrollers due to illness and some have moved out of the neighborhood, so we really need your support. Let us know after you register and one of our patrollers will meet you there.
flexible with the scheduling- mornings, afternoon and evening shifts available.
How can we all help
Keep your outside lights on at night. Several streets are very dark and welcoming to crime.
Make sure we have your contact phone numbers, so the patrollers can call you if you have your garage door open at night.
Practice the 9pm rule. At 9pm, you check to make sure your garage and doors are closed and locked.
Look at your neighbors across from you to see if theirs is closed too. If theirs are open, call and let them know.
We would love to see you for this event where we can get to know one another and hang with the whole family. Remember, a social neighborhood is a safe neighborhood, so promote crime prevention by throwing a great party.
Neighborhood events are an opportunity for you, your neighbors and local businesses to forge relationships and build community. We would love to see everyone out making new friends!
Join us from 6pm-8pm for Live Music by local band Shades Of Gray while we play lawn games and Bingo on NW 79th. We will have local food trucks Coits Rootbeer and Hotdogs as well as Oklahoma Kettle Corn, who also serves lemonade. This is an all ages event that will have a bounce house and door prizes.
Please be safe and remember that fireworks are illegal within the city limits of Oklahoma City. Please do not set any off within the neighborhood. I have attached a list of 22 places where you can go on multiple nights this weekend to see fireworks legally from Brandy McDonnell of the Oklahoman. Wherever you go, be safe!
