Observers are a group of willing volunteers who are all residents of Lonehill and Beverley. They act as our eyes and ears and perform an extremely important function – that of monitoring our security service provider. Once during the day and once per night, one person will travel with a supervisor and check on certain guards, road closures or complexes, to see that all is in order, i.e. that they are awake, their radio is working, that they have all their equipment and that their occurrence books are being filled in.
The observer completes a form for each visit and this is then used to resolve any problem that arise. This is an extremely valuable function and is most important when it comes to keeping the service provider in line!
The more volunteer observers that we have registered, the fewer duties they are required to do. One tour of duty usually takes less than an hour, and this can be done at any time.
The LRA values this support very highly, and it will be hosting an annual function for the volunteer observers, in addition to recognizing them publicly for their unselfish service to the community.
To offer your services in this regard, please contact the LRA offices and we will gladly enroll you and show you the ropes.
