Neighborhood Watch still going strong
Last month, I was fortunate enough to attend a Neighborhood Watch retreat sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security. While I can’t say I learned a great deal of new information—as I have long been an avid supporter of NW—the experience did renew my resolve to advocate this critical aspect of community. Criminals, like cockroaches, are most active when they think we’re not looking, and a well-coordinated Neighborhood Watch is, by far, the best way to keep the criminal element at bay. Get to know your neighbors, share contact information, and, by all means, if you want to play a more active role in CYNW, I encourage you to contact our Safety Coordinator, Kyle Gowen, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
