Lt. Duane Gordon talked at the 15th District PSA1 meeting on Augut 27th about the benefits of Town Watch groups in the city as a town prevention tool. He noted that the other areas of the 15th district have town watch groups but PSA1 is lacking. Therefore, the police will meeting with Representative Dawkins and Kim Washington at the CDC to explore establishing one or more Town Watch groups.
What type of Town Watch to be established is yet to be determined. They come in many varieties, ranging from folks who just look out their window to groups who do nightly patrols. Further news will be forthcoming at the next PSA meeting and a call for volunteers will go out.
Lt. Gordon ran through the statistics for the most recent period. As we noted in an earlier post, burglary is up significantly over past months. Keep your eyes open and report any suspicious activity to 911.
The next PSA1 meeting will be held on September 24th at 7 PM at Aria Hospital.
