Is this the person we contact to get our Neighborhood Watch off the ground?
Erin Gibson (Editor) November 23, 2011 at 03:02 PM
Yes, one of her many duties will be to serve as a liaison to Neighborhood Watch groups in the City.

That's wonderful to hear!
Erin Gibson (Editor) November 23, 2011 at 07:36 PM
It is really good news. I know Neighborhood Watch members have been pushing for a new cps in the city for some time now. Mala, what neighborhood/community Neighborhood Watch are you a part of?
Mala November 25, 2011 at 09:25 PM
Not part of one yet, we've been wanting to start one though.
