Sparkman Extended Neighborhood Patrol (ENP) is a voluntary program that brings a layer of safety to Sparkman neighborhood. Sparkman ENP program provides uniformed, armed off-duty Dallas police officers that patrol our neighborhood in marked Dallas police cars. The objective of the program is to deter crime in our neighborhood by proactive rather than reactive policing. The program is optional and there are annual membership dues to fund the additional patrols. The program has been in existence since 2005 and was started by a Sparkman resident.
