Meet Phillis Hicks-Judkins, Chief Executive Officer for Northend Neighborhood Patrol (NNP), a 501(C)3 organization. A native Detroiter, Entrepreneur and Detroit Public School’s Northwestern High Alumni.
In her position, she commands the operations of the NNP and coordinates with local law enforcement to monitor a twenty block radius in Detroit from Woodward to I-75 (West/East) and Westminster to Horton (North/South).
In the 1970’s, she worked in the first computer math lab for Biddle Elementary. Mrs. Judkins also began her first social initiative on Detroit’s westside running a Boy’s Scout Troop always concerned about our youth.
Since then, she has contributed to the community as demonstrated by the prestigious recognition she received for her passion and devotion to the safety of people living and working in Detroit. As she proudly states, “The best job I’ve had is the one I have right now. I’m working in my own neighborhood ensuring the safety of the community.” Further stating, “It’s where I began as block club member, then a block captain and now running a neighborhood patrol organizing community based projects with a social mission.”

To create a sustainable, self sufficient, secured, prosperous, and harmonious community that will continue for generations to come.
For over three years, NNP has consistently sponsored community service events like neighborhood clean ups, senior support services, lawn care services, laundry and mentorship study groups for school students along with shared living quarters for people facing homelessness.
