Chief Jan Easterling, Deputy Chief of the Northeast Division of the Dallas Police Department along with it's strong core of volunteers have organized and will be offering for the first time ever, a one day massive training event. The event will be far reaching in subject matter and will be open to all residents, Home Owners Associations, existing Crime Watch groups, the apartment community, and anyone interested in community involvement and activity. Many classes will be offered. Upon completion of the courses selected, a certification certificate will be issued.
We have never had full day courses all run on the same day so this will be a first for:
· VIP (Volunteers In Patrol)
· C.H.I.P.S. (Citizens Helping In Parking Solutions)
· VIP for Apartments, Townhomes, and Condos (NEW)
If you enroll in any of the above classes, that will be your only selection allowed as these are all day classes. If you do not select one of the four all day classes, you may select up to five from the following list:
A. Build Your Crime Watch Group - CWEB - Our link to the Dallas Police DepartmentB. Build Your VIP Group From Scratch - Crime Reduction Techniques C.

You will need to complete five of the eight classes for "Boot Camp 2006" Certification or one of the all day classes. You may register in advance which is encouraged due to limited classroom facilities. If you do not wish to receive "Boot Camp 2006" Certification, you may select as few classes as you wish however preference will be given to those all day attendees.
Registration details, specific agenda, and further details will be forthcoming. We are the first Division in the City if Dallas and the Dallas Police Department to offer such a comprehensive one-day program. Our success will depend upon your participation and will set a bar of high standards for the rest of the city to follow. If you have any questions in the meantime, please direct them to:
