(Updated 6:13 p.m.) Members of a politically influential yeshiva led by Rabbi Daniel Greer (pictured at top)—who have spent more than a decade rebuilding their stretch of Edgewood—have organized an armed citizens patrol.

They made the announcement Monday afternoon at Yeshiva of New Haven (aka The Gan School) on Elm Street. They plan to begin patrolling Monday evening in two-person teams wearing “Edgewood Park Defense Patrol” T-shirts and carrying concealed, licensed firearms.

The patrols are scheduled to run from 6 to 10 p.m. daily in the area bounded by Norton Street, Edgewood Avenue, and West Park and Whalley Avenues.
