Flint Begins 'Blue Badge Volunteer Corps' Training 7-13-2010

The city of Flint will begin Blue Badge Patrol Volunteer Corps training on Tuesday.
The training sessions are for residents interested in being a volunteer at one of the city's police mini-stations, participating in neighborhood crime watch, or working as a Flint police volunteer.
Flint Mayor Dayne Walling said Blue Badge is a program aimed at reducing crime with the cooperation of residents and police forces.
"It is partnerships between residents, business owners, and police working together that have a positive impact on reducing neighborhood crime and enhancing the quality of life in the community," Walling said.
Officials said the program is built upon the principles of community policing -- community members are the eyes and ears for police, addressing both crime and quality of life issues.
Background checks will be conducted for all new volunteers.
