“It will be nothing but cruising at night reporting suspicious activities,” Craig Funke, a member of the group, said.
Funke made his comments August 24 at a city council meeting. The council approved a resolution supporting the group and will allow the group to have application forms available at city hall.
Funke said the Karnes County Sheriff’s Office was very supportive of the group. In order to participate as a member of the group, applicants must be willing to be a witness and make sworn statements as to any criminal activity or suspicious activity they saw while patrolling.
“We will have no firearms. It will be non-confrontational,” Funke said.
“We’re not trying to apprehend anybody,” Larry Dement, another member of the group, said.
