PECOS - New eyes and ears will soon help keep the streets of Pecos safer.

Training is now underway for the "Citizens on Patrol" Program with the Pecos Police Department.

It gives citizens the chance to hit the pavement looking for any suspicious activity and help officers with house checks and traffic control.

So far, about 30 people have jumped on board and began their training on Tuesday night.

The Chief of Police tells NewsWest 9, this will ultimately protect Pecos neighbors and help them watch the streets.

Midland Police officers helped develop the program.
It's modeled after a similar program in the Tall City.
