SAN PEDRO, Calif., March 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- With local law enforcement citing budget and manpower constraints little is being done to seriously stem the tide and truly address the problems.
One San Pedro resident decided to take the lead in an effort to provide safe streets for the community and has formed a "Citizens on Patrol" program modeled after many similar citizen groups across the country.
Lee Dworshak, a 65 year old forty year resident of San Pedro recently formed "San Pedro Citizen Guard."
Different levels of San Pedro Citizen Guard volunteers provide vital services such as roving street patrol and event security, elder home check-ins, home security checks and other duties assisting other San Pedro support groups.
There are a number of ways you can help…

#2 Volunteer Your Time: San Pedro Citizen Guard is always in need of help! In addition to neighborhood patrols and event security, we offer elder check-in, home security checks, community cleanup initiatives and more for our volunteers.
