In 2015, Elk Creek Crossing joined forces with a community east of us called Walnut Ridge neighborhood, aimed at keeping our little area of the world safe. Resident volunteers, two per vehicle, patrol the area, mostly at night, alerting homeowners if their garage door is open, report to the city if lights are out and remove illegal signage affixed on poles.
The volunteers each received a criminal background check, underwent training and certification by the Omaha Police Department. The Walnut Ridge/ECC Citizen Patrol is a non profit organization affiliated with the Omaha Coalition of Citizen Patrols.

Volunteers are always needed to join the patrol. Call or text Walnut Ridge/ECC Patrol Captain Jerry Schulte for more information: 402-201-1656
