As some of your know, I recently initiated an effort to bring a Neighborhood Crime Watch to VI. I have completed the training and background check to become a Coordinator. I meet with our District Crime Prevention Officer, Stefanie Patridge, Tuesday to get my "badge." Officer Partridge has already ordered signs to be installed at the three entrances so I'll also get an update as to when they will be installed.
I've already met with several neighbors who have offered to serve on the Watch Committee. Thank you Laura Reitan and Steve Cropper!! The more folks we have involved in the Watch the better. Therefore, we will be having an organizational/brainstorming meeting this Friday (June 23rd) at 5:30 at my home, 1940 Illinois. If you are interested in helping out, or just want to share your thoughts, we welcome your participation. And if you are unable to attend, but would still like to help, please email me at CindyOatess@gmail.com.
Officer Partridge and the SPPD is really excited that VI is coming on board. Hopefully, we will see many of you Friday night!!
In the meantime, have a terrific (and safe) week,
