Why E.N.P. Matters

Safety is everyone’s priority, whether you’re new to Hollywood/Santa Monica or a long-time resident. Our neighborhood is a haven where you can enjoy an evening stroll or a day at the park without worry. But why take chances? Since its inception in 2005, E.N.P. has been instrumental in reducing crime and enhancing the quality of life in our community.

Meet the Team

Our E.N.P. is more than just a program; it’s a partnership between you and dedicated officers from the Dallas Police Department. Meet Officer Kirk Hesse and Officer Reginald Knox, who are committed to keeping our streets safe. They’re not just patrolling; they’re part of our community, attending events and quarterly meetings.

How E.N.P. Works

Our E.N.P. officers are on duty 16-20 hours per week, strategically scheduled to keep potential criminals guessing. While on patrol, they’re plugged into the 911 system, ready to respond to any emergency in our neighborhood. Your annual dues fund this vital service, including the police car, officer salaries, and yard signs that signal our collective commitment to safety.

Always on the Lookout

Even when not patrolling our streets, our E.N.P. officers are always alert to what’s happening in Hollywood/Santa Monica. Thanks to their familiarity with our community, they’ve often responded to calls while on general D.P.D. duty.
