Members range in age from 26 to 68 and most work full-time in a variety of jobs such as computer programmer, engineer, public relations, teacher, medical field, homemaker, apartment manager, para-legal, banker, and in administration. We have several retired members who also contribute to CP. In 2010, Citizens Patrol (along with our other volunteers in public safety) donated almost 21,000 hours to the police department and Lynnwood community to help make the city a safer place to live and work.
