DID YOU KNOW?

That the Hale Area Citizens Patrol was organized in 1975 by a group of concerned citizens who were interested in aiding toward the safety of the people and the property of Plainfield Township.

The volunteers for this program started by donating their own time and vehicles, and in the beginning furnished their own gasoline. They act only as eyes and ears for the Sheriff's Department, and with their approval.

As progress was made, property owners and business people made donations to the bank account in the old Farmer's and Merchants State Bank; which is now Independant Bank. As the funds grew a portable police radio was purchased which has since been updated.

The members report fires, accidents and anything out of the ordinary, and assist anyone in need. Although we have no police powers, any report is followed up by the Sheriff's Department if needed.

Plainfield Township consists of 3 townships in one [108 square miles], and covers not only business places, but people living around the several area lakes. Our patrol covers an average of 80 miles each time a vehicle goes out. As donations have been made, there is now a gasoline allowance.

Therefore donations are always accepted. We are always looking for new volunteers. If interested feel free to come to a meeting at the VFW HALL on the last Wednesday of the month at 7:00 P.M.
