SCP Now Registered As Non-Profit Corporation

 We are very happy to announce that the Stonehaven Community Patrol has successfully registered as a non-profit corporation with the North Carolina Secretary of State. Our registration # is SOS 1122955.

 We are seeking the “pro bono” assistance of an attorney to formalize our articles of incorporation and to draw up quality corporate bylaws. In addition, we are trying to determine if it is feasible to register with the IRS and, if so, what classification to utilize.

 Also, we have discovered several government programs pertaining to the distribution / donation of Federal surplus property and we hope to qualify for equipment from the programs.

 Our long-term goal is continue to build on what we have started by eventually operating the Patrol 24 hours a day by utilizing cadets attending  North Carolina Basic Law Enforcement Training courses in our area.

 In addition, again eventually, we hope to convince off-duty police officers to participate in the Patrol to better train the cadets while working to protect the greater Stonehaven Area.

We hope that our registering as a non-profit corporation will enable us to qualify for grants from private organizations as well government agencies.

 But in the meantime, we are still in need of donations to keep the Patrol in operation, so if anyone is able to contribute to the Patrol we would very much appreciate it.
