SPOKANE, Wash. — It's a chilly Friday afternoon in northeast Spokane. Kim Bailey and Sandy Smith have been watching the weather forecast carefully for a couple of days, hoping it wouldn't start snowing again.

The two women are volunteers at Neva-Wood COPS, just east of NorthTown Mall off Wellesley Avenue, and they are getting ready to go out on their almost weekly neighborhood observation patrol.
