Increased Community Involvement Around the Country

July 27, 2009 at 1:25 pm Leave a comment

Over the past week or so, there have been a handful of stories about communities that are getting involved with civilian crime watch programs. Some are initiated by the police department—providing increased education about crime prevention and creating new neighborhood watch-type programs, and other are initiated by citizens banding together to take responsibility for their own homes and neighborhoods.

A few of the communities in the news:
Gig Harbor, Washington, is providing more education on citizen crime prevention and block watch programs for citizens.
Urbandale, Iowa, is responding to a rash of recent break-ins and burglaries by creating a new Community Crime Eye program.
Harrisburg, Georgia, are signing a petition to increase their vigilance and decrease crime in their city.
