Introducing the E-Neighborhood Watch

Last night at the 1711/12 beat meeting, Police Commander Pontecore agreed to work with us in using a surveillance tree.

If you have cameras on the outside of your home, or a video doorbell, you can join this list. Then, if a crime occurs near your home, police may ask if you’d be willing to share your footage. In this way, you can really assist our officers.

This is a very smart way to connect our isolated systems and create a better surveillance network over our neighborhood that is more useful to the police. We know they are overworked. Let’s help them in the ways that we can.

Please join our E-Neighborhood Watch.
