UPPER ROCKRIDGE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION (URNA) contracts with a professional (licensed, bonded and insured) private security company to patrol the streets of Upper Rockridge. If you live in Lower Rockridge, or in another neighboring area, please click here. Our coverage map is shown at bottom of the page…
The primary purpose of the patrols is to create a visual deterrent to crime, to operate as our eyes and ears during peak crime hours, and when appropriate, to communicate and coordinate with the police.
We also have installed several cameras at strategic intersections of the neighborhood.
The patrol officers are unarmed, are prohibited from using racial or discriminatory profiling, and can only intervene to protect someone from imminent physical harm. Patrol hours are sent to Members only for security reasons via email.
This service is membership based, but of course it benefits all, so we highly encourage everyone in our neighborhood to participate at one of the two Membership levels. Please support us to help keep our neighborhood safe for everyone. Membership is only pennies/day.
URNA is a California nonprofit unincorporated 501(c)(4) association managed by local volunteers and formed in the Fall of 2014. For more information and our Steering Committee, please visit “Legal Stuff” page.
