Our 2016 Membership Drive has Begun

Today you should have received your 2016 HEAR membership form. Your $25 dues payment for the calendar year of 2016 help cover the costs of our neighborhood security patrols, monthly cleanup work, fees associated with our website, printing and mailing of our neighborhood newsletters and membership reminders and the costs of our twice-yearly general membership meetings. 

For the past several years our membership numbers have not been sufficient to cover the costs of our security patrols and we have been able to sustain them because of a surplus in our accounts that built up prior to initiating the patrols. This is not sustainable, and we must increase our membership this year by at least 130 households (out of the 1240 households in our neighborhood) to cover this expense. If we can't do this, we will probably discontinue the patrols. If you value this service (and we've heard from many of you that you do) Please Join Now - Don't Wait.

It's easy to join/renew - just go to our simple online membership page and fill out the online form and either securely pay by credit card or mail your check or money order to the address on the page. If you prefer to print a hardcopy form and mail in your check you can download, print and mail our membership form with your check to the address on the form. 

Thanks for your continuing support of HEAR,
Karl Benedict, HEAR President

We will hold our election for new Board members. We have 4 individuals rotating off of the board, and will be electing 4 new board members to fill those vacancies. Two of the vacancies are for a two year term, the other two vacancies are to fill the 2nd year of a two year term. Participating on the board is not a time consuming or difficult responsibility.

2015 Neighborhood Security Update

Following our very successful mixed daytime and nighttime patrol schedule that Tru Security provided to the neighborhood during the holiday season we are working continuously with their team to develop a continuously changing program of mixed daytime and nighttime patrols that is responsive to emerging patterns of incidents in the neighborhood. The HEAR leadership receives daily reports from the Tru Security patrol, and these reports, in combination with information available through crimemapping.com (the website that the Albuquerque Police Department uses to provide maps of crimes in the city), help us update our neighborhood patrol strategies as needed.  

Please remember - For emergencies call 911. For non-emergency incidents TRU Security can be contacted, day or night, at 505-515-0067 (alternate number: 505-712-8721).

If you would like to share information about an incident or suspicious activity with your neighbors you can also send an email to hear.newsletter@gmail.com to request that it be sent out through our neighborhood mailing list.
