From the NECOP website:
What Is NECOP?
The NorthEast Citizens on Patrol is a 600+ member volunteer group committed to helping reduce crime in the neighborhood. The Patrol is a partnership between HARBEL Community Organization, the umbrella group representing 25 community associations, and Baltimore City’s Northeast District Police.

The Patrol grew out of citizens’ deep frustration about escalating nuisance, quality-of-life crimes, and their seeming inability in reducing it. With leadership from then-Major now Hagerstown Police chief Art Smith and Major Michael Hilliard on the law enforcement side, and Naomi Benyowitz, HARBEL’s Executive Director, the Patrol recruited members and rolled out for the first time in January 2000. The Patrol continues to enjoy the enthusiastic support of the current Northeast District Commander.
