Spring is right around the corner and as summer heats up so does our crime in the SRCC.Â Â With people out of school, away on vacation and out of work, theÂ warm weather will start to increase the number of burglaries and break-in’s for the SRCC.
So, please come and help us do something about it. Â Come and get trained for the Neighborhood Watch.Â Â Who knows you might learn something new? Â Â For instance, did you know that the majority of burglary in the SRCC take place on Tuesday.
I wanted to let everyone know that we have a training session for NEW MEMBERS coming up on Thursday, March 8, 2012 at 7:00 PM at Grace United Methodist Church.Â Â At this meeting new members will be instructed what to look for, safety, basic patrol skills and techniques.
Additionally, we request all previously trained members come by at 8:00. Â Â As you may know participation is a huge problem right now.Â Â Of the almost 50 people who are trained, onlyÂ about 15 are regularly going on patrols.Â Â We are attempting to establish a buddy system as well as providing a tutorial for how to us the calendar on Google.Â Â Additionally, we’d love to have your support in welcoming the new members.
If you have any neighbors or know of anyone who is interested please pass this along to them.Â Â There are no alternate times as this point so it may be another few months before we train again.
As always, we’re looking for new block captains:
