We need everyone’s willingness to serve as extra eyes for law enforcement. Neighborhood Watch groups are helpful because neighbors are trained on what to watch for and how to report suspcious activity to APD, are united with a common focus and build cooperation by hosting a few social events a year. Why not start one on your block or re-start one that has fizzled out? Call me (332-5240) or Steve Sink, APD Crime Prevention Manager (244-6644) to find out how to get a Neighborhood Watch group formed on your block.
