Patrolling the streets and open areas of a neighbourhood is one of the most effective pillars of crime prevention and is in effect a community mobilisation against crime in action. This community mobilisation may be driven by a crime situation that spiralled out of control or as a sound proactive crime prevention strategy. The latter is an informed community decision which would be demonstrated by a significant percentage of the community being actively involved as patrollers.

Apart from active vehicle patrollers LCW also have stationary observers and foot patrollers that cover regular routes as part of their daily exercise.

These voluntary patrollers are not residents with a lot of spare time, but rather committed residents that prioritise their commitments with the aim to make our neighbourhood a safer and more secure place to live. Patrollers are all formally registered trained and bound by a Code of Conduct and patroller guidelines.

Awareness of the crime and the actual risks in an area is significantly sharpened through active participation as a neighbourhood patroller.
