Roseville Police Foundation donates Golf Cart to Citizen Park Patrol

2015 Club Car Golf Cart given to Citizen Park Patrol by the Roseville Police Foundation.

Roseville, MN (June 29, 2015) On Monday, June 8, 2015 at the Roseville City Council Meeting at 6:00 p.m. the Roseville Police Foundation presented a new 2015 Club Car Golf Cart to the Citizen Park Patrol program. The golf cart, worth $11,000, was donated to help increase the area in which the volunteers help patrol.

Mike Bilski, Board Member of Roseville Police Foundation, said, “This donation fulfills our mission of providing additional resources that the Roseville Police Foundation has not previously had the budget for. We are very thankful for the generous donations from North American Banking Company, Premier Bank and Community Resource Bank who helped make this donation possible. Club Car also generously gave a 20% discount on the golf cart.”

The Citizen Park Patrol is a program offered by the Roseville Police Department that utilizes volunteers to serve as ambassadors to Roseville’s Central Park.  Volunteers patrol the parks on golf carts, ATV’s, bicycles, and by foot.  The Citizen Park Patrol is hoping to expand the program and membership for opportunities for community members to participate. Park Patrollers prevent crime by keeping an eye on the parking lots and can also be seen dishing out dog treats to the many four-legged park users taking their owners for walks along the extensive trails.

The vehicles the Citizen Park Patrol had used previously were a 2003 golf cart and Rhino ATV. The 4-seater golf cart has already been used to help a group of retired Teamsters travel from the parking lot to the park shelter for their bi-annual potluck.
