Has anyone ever looked into at how much MONEY is WASTED by voulnteers driving around all day in CITY owned vehicles.At the expence of Tax Payers MONEY. Do they really write that many tickets that it pays for ALL the GAS, INSURANCE, MAINTENCE on these vehicles. How much money is really spent comparied to what is brought in, is it worth it?

I think it is a good program. The more eyes and ears out there the better. You worried about tax-payers money, cut the section 8 housing. Now there is a bad return on OUR money.

HPD Volunteers do more than just drive around town. They assist HPD with setting up things like traffic control at accident scenes, setting up DUI checkpoints, spotting things that are "out-of-place", and they also help with paperwork that keeps more cops on the beat. They also help a lot with vehicle and equipment maintenance, by delivering PD cars and equipment to the City Yard for needed services. These folks are doing this free of charge, because they care about Hemet. I see nothing but benefits to Hemet from the Volunteer program, and I thank all involved.

nothing is free ! What does it cost the tax payers for fuel, insurance,maintence of vehicles, any idea? More than they write in handi cap tickts, red zone. Yes they do work for nothing save money by keeping them doing paper work.

Well after going for a morning walk this A.M. I'm for them going out and citing people for their trashy front yards. Chickens, broken down cars, weeds, etc etc. By-the-way, a tarp does not constitute proper fencing screen! This town is looking so seedy, it is disgusting. Since when are people putting their bar-b-ques in the front yard along with their lawn chairs? We are looking so third world, heck, get the feeling of being the other side of the border without leaving town.

got one of these creeps around me that just likes to harrass people by acting like he is a cop he thinks he is someone important but i thing he just lack attention at home. not all of the volunteers are lame just a few abuse the system for their own purpose. seems that HPD has no control of there volunteers or can't keep track of them. they just do as they please just drive around town without a cause, what a waste of tax payers money. if council wants to save some bucks they need to see what it is costing them for these volunteers to drive for hours on end aimlessly around town home, stores, maintenance costs, fuel, insurance, not cheap these days.maybe buy puting ream police on the street instead off these wantabes that would help with crime.

Yep. Sounds like you are under the microscope. I'll bet they have cameras in your house. I'd hate to be you right now.
#13 Apr 24, 2013
what does timeline above mean?
is it meth paranoia or some reason why a few old geezers would surveil your house?
sounds creepy. some of the old guys were cops and when they move to hemet have that tude in a 78 y.o. body and they can't make the moves like they used to.
#14 Apr 24, 2013
are you a female and they like watching you cos their old wrinkly skin fugly old wives can't do anything.
or is there a lot of traffic to and fro that makes it look like a dope house.
do you have a record?
a kid that is in a gang.
plus some of those sightings are weeks apart.
is there a restraining order involved.
i know a lot of people hate these wanna be cops, some of the old guys are very cool and nice and some can't believe they're on deaths door and want to flex the plex and get in a mix to show their s*it.

grow up you must belong to someone, whos bit$$ are you?

We are elderly couple, do not have kids, do not do drugs or drink alcohol. No criminal records. Yes, I am female & listen to Christian music <><
I no longer walk in our area for fear of being set up by lying volunteers and their cohort neighbors, one of which is a realtor trying to drive us out of our house by having her boys fly RC jet/planes over our house (See RC Planes posting.)
If there are cameras on our house, they are paranoid criminals who wouldn't call the police if a child was being raped in the street. The volunteers do noting about the druggies that buy dope on the street this stalker lives on and then park across from our house to use their drugs. We are the ones video taping the harassment.
There are at least 2 other white haired volunteers that work with this creep and drive into our cul-de-sac. One man is really tall.
First time I saw the creep stalking me he had recently moved in a couple blocks away and had walked to my house and was casing it. That was almost a yr.1/2 ago. I had turned in his neighbors for getting into our mailbox a year before. Might be relatives. They all had Arizona license plates.
When I would go into our front yard, I believe a neighbor would call this creep on his cell phone. Then two of the volunteers would show up in the HPD truck, driver hanging out of window glaring at me. Sometimes stopping and watching me, like on Halloween evening, in the car. After a few months of this a family member said he believed they were being called to watch me ... work in my front yard or ?
He began watching for me when I was out front and walking his dog ovr & hanging around coming on our property. Sometimes 3xs a day/night. Him & his wife have personal vehicles with handycapped plates. Wife will drive into cul-de-sac looking for me.
02/03/2013 - I confronted stalker with a video camera. He tried to get me to take his cell phone and call the HPD on him telling me to get a restraining order against him and sue him in court. I refused to touch the creeps phone, believing he was going to set me up using cops.
02/16/2013 Stalkers show up on foot and began calling me names & laughing at me and video taping me in my fenced front yard after I defended myself against them lying to people walking into out cul-de-sac (video taped). I continued to video tape while they were video taping me on my own property in my own yard. They were telling everyone living around us lies and also confronted people coming to our house out front & lying to them.
03/20/2013 - Stalkers called HPD - a day LATER, after I turned a corner coming home one afternoon lying that I swerved at them. Lie. All on video tape! Good cop didn't even document the call after what I told him.
Went to HPD. Told to get restraining order (punish the victim by making them pay). I think the volunteers do this to have something to laugh about at their parties. They may not all be like this but you are what you associate with.
They also have neighbors harass us. All on video - more than one lawyer has told us to make copies of everything and we do have the right to protect ourselves on our property and can video tape in public.
Makes 1 wonder if all the tickets this creep hands out in the parking lots are legitimate or are they just spending the time making a few private $$$ using city property to harass people.
Just because they are with the PD doesn't mean they are honest.
Criminals & creeps are found in every sector of the comminity. People who know us believe someone the PD is getting kickbacks to have us driven out of our house.
HPD - If you are having us harassed please stop and use your authority to deal with the crime in this town and leave the law-abiding citizens in peace. This is Abuse of authority.

After reading a few of your posts, Hemet Law-Abider, I mean this with total respect: go make an appointment with a good psychologist & have them check for schizophrenia & senility. I don't mean that to be rude & there is nothing to be ashamed of because there are lots of good medication that you can take that will help you live a comfortable & stress free life.
There are programs within certain police departments that are geared towards seniors & disabled. They do a drive by check to make sure that there is nothing abnormal going on. For example, they might take notice that there isn't a pile of old mail sticking out of your mail box, newspapers piled at your door, basically to make sure you are still alive & well. Many seniors live alone & and if something were to happen, it isn't until someone complains about the smell before something is done. You can not complain to the police department to NOT patrol a particular area. That's their job! "Your" cul-de-sac might be an assigned breaking spot.
In my opinion, I would be highly insulted if my neighbor started videotaping me or my family! You want to video tape me or my children? Fine! I'll give you a show! I might walk around naked or, hell, I might just start video taping you back to see how you like it! Video tape my children, and I don't care how old you are, I will record you and report YOU for harassment! I mean, I hate to be rude because I suspect that you have some mental issues, but think about it....what do YOU have going on in your or your husbands life that is worth stalking? Are you guys in the witness protection program? Are you royalty and someone is going to sell your pictures to the Enquirer? Are you rich and just want to live in Hemet because you enjoy the atmosphere?
Sweetheart (and I mean that dearly) please, for your own health and happiness, please see a doctor.

I've been reading this post sounds like stalking to me! Annon is that short for Psychologist? Is that who you are or just a idot? If I sound harsh or disrespectfull then don't respond because it will get worse!!! You must not read ENGLISH to good I didn't see or read any refferance to videoing in your yard or house! Were you the one standing on the corner on your phone talking to WHO instructing YOUR CHILDREN on what to do that night you called HPD if so you need to find something bigger to hide behind! You were seen by many neigbhors! Sureprized they didn't call on you acting strange! Were did they say anything about police crusing their neigbhorhood? Thast is what they are paid to do not so called volunteers who waste CITY MONEY shopping in city vehicles! As far as taking pictures or video its every were the city cops stores even in the dressing rooms so be ware!!Sounds like you know or you are the person(s) that they are talking about, is that true? Are you the people that they are talking about? From your post it sounds like you are! Maybe you should set an appointment to see the psycholgist and doctor to get some pills!
How do you call someone sweetheart when you don't even know them or do you?
