“Community participation is key to building strong, safe neighborhoods, and it’s easy for you to get involved,” said Public Safety Supervisor Kery German. “These presentations will give you a general overview of the program, explain the steps to start and maintain a group in your neighborhood, and show you how easy it is. Neighborhood Watch is the best and easiest way to learn not only about crime trends, but also disaster preparedness, home security and personal safety issues,” German said.
