Citizens on Patrol One of the most proven methods to keep the criminals from owning the street is for neighbors to band together as Citizens on Patrol.  This helps to make the neighborhood more active outdoors and makes our streets less attractive to the criminals.   Participants are required to complete basic class with twelve hours of class training and an 8 hour ride-a-long with a police officer and attend additional ongoing training throughout the year.
Citizen Observer Sign up to receive neighborhood alerts directly from the Cincinnati Police Department about crimes or other incidents that are uniquely relevant to North Avondale.
Crime Stoppers Anonymously provide law enforcement agencies with information on crimes or suspects. Tipster can give information without revealing their identity and may be eligible for a financial reward for the information they provide.

This responsibility may be achieved by (but is not limited to) development and enforcement of health laws, prevention of disease, education, and curative and rehabilitation activities.
