The Patrol was established
25 years ago to provide patrol coverage in the Boulevard Oaks and Southampton
neighborhoods. Over the years the service has been a great asset to the
neighborhood. Patrolmen are able to respond quickly to a variety of calls,
ranging from suspicious persons to magazine scam artists and graffiti
vandals, to calls about serious crimes. Although our tax dollars pay for
police, the city budget is not large enough to include regular beat patrols,
nor are there enough HPD officers to meet the demands of America’s
fourth largest city. The Patrol fills this void. Vacation watch and alarm
service are also available to subscribers. Please note that although they
share similar names, the Southampton/Boulevard Oaks Patrol and BOCA (acronym
for Boulevard Oaks Civic Association) are separate entities. BOCA encourages
you to support this invaluable service.

the Patrol is often our first line of defense, the Patrol is not a substitute
police department. The Patrol monitors HPD dispatch throughout the day
and responds immediately to emergency calls from Southampton residents,
arriving on the scene much faster than on-duty HPD. Emergency calls should
be made to 911.
