National Night Out '09!


Update: Citizen's Patrol
The patrol has had a small group out every week since this April 2009. We have 2 cars with 3 volunteers per car; a driver, radio operator and note taker.  Many addresses have been reported for graffiti and illegal dumping thanks to our faithful volunteers. Broken street lights are reported and promptly repaired.

Noise complaints can now be turned in online.

WHY a Neighborhood Crime Watch?
A Neighborhood Crime Watch encourages citizen participation in reducing crime.
Residents and police learn how to work together to achieve one common goal – "Making Our Neighborhood Safe."
Members will be taught how to protect your property and report suspicious activity to the police.

WHAT Does a Neighborhood Crime Watch Do?
Members meet their neighbors and learn how to make their homes and business more secure.
We watch out for each other and report suspicious activities to police.
Neighbors mark their valuable property with an identifying number to discourage theft and help police return stolen property.

Crime Watch Components

Meetings – These will be held at 6:00pm the 2nd Thursday of each month before the Bartlett Park Neighborhood meeting at 2000 7th Street South.
