REMINDER & UPDATE LET’S TALK ABOUT NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH

Please be aware that the clubhouse has limited capacity and based on responses there are approximately 14 people who have confirmed to me they are attending the meeting tonight. If we have more people show up than the clubhouse can accommodate, unfortunately people will have to be turned away.

This meeting is only to explain what a neighborhood watch is to help determine if this is something folks are interested in bringing back.

Any questions not related to the information presented I ask that they be held until after the Nashua PD has finished.

I will have a sign in sheet only for the purpose of identifying what streets are being represented to identify gaps and to indicate if attendees are interested in being their street point of contact. That way if there is enough interest to formally bring back neighborhood watch some recruitment can be done where no representation has been made or where no point of contacts have volunteered.

Ideally for meetings 1-2 people per street (which can of course rotate) to act as liaison would help make sure no one is turned away. My street has 24 units with 1-5 adults at each unit, so if everyone on my street attended we would be over capacity. We have over 400 units in our community.

Thank you,

10/04 @ 7PM LET’S TALK ABOUT NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH

Dear Neighbor,
This is an invitation to you to help deter crime in our neighborhood.
We are getting together to talk about Neighborhood Watch, a simple neighbors-helping-neighbors
program that has helped other communities reduce crime by as much as 65%. Many watch groups have not only seen crime go down, but have discovered a new feeling of security and belonging among neighbors.
All of us are concerned about becoming the victim of a crime, but no one of us can fight crime alone. Not even the police can do it without our help. And isolating ourselves behind locked door and not knowing our neighbors, actually makes it easier for burglars and other criminals to take advantage of our neighborhood.
At the meeting you will learn about the activities of a neighborhood watcher. What’s asked is really quite simple, such as picking up the newspapers and mail when your neighbor is away on vacation. Or keeping an eye out for unusual activity like a strange person snooping around a house, then alerting the police and your neighbors.
A Crime Prevention Specialist from the Police Department will be here to talk about the best ways to protect our neighborhood and answer questions.
Why Should I Participate?
• Because crime – and the distrust and isolation it creates – hurts each of us, our neighbors and children.
• Because areas with active Neighborhood Watches have reported dramatic reductions in crime and fear of crime.
• Because our community effort needs you to make it work!
Please join in.
Thank you.
