Please welcome the newest Neighborhood Watch group in the Foothills Area Command: The residents of the 9700 block of Aztec Rd NE. Thanks to Ida and Eddie for doing the Starter Kit and hosting the meeting and thank you to Lisa for stepping forward as the Block Captain for the group! We now have a block of 28 homes ready to serve as eyes and ears on the block for their community and APD. If you want to start a Neighborhood Watch group on your block, call Steve Sink at 244-6644 to request your Starter Kit.
Day 24 of the Foothills 30-Day Garage Door Pledge: We are in the home stretch and I hope everyone who signed the pledge form sent to Neighborhood Watch Block Captains and Foothills Area Command Neighborhood Associations and HOAS is still keeping those garage doors closed and alerting neighbors who have forgotten to close their garage doors.
