Redwood City, CA - February 23, 2010 -
The Redwood City Police Department and the Neighborhood Liaison program have teamed up to reenergize the City’s Neighborhood Watch program, and the result is an expanded, invigorated, and growing community program. Now, here’s a Neighborhood Liaison Workshop that will provide the Simple Steps of Starting a Neighborhood Watch.
- Wednesday, March 3rd 7 - 8:30 pm
Community Activities Building
1400 Roosevelt Avenue in Redwood City
Redwood City community members are invited to join with neighbors in learning these key steps to forming a neighborhood watch:
- Planning for a Neighborhood Watch
- How to conduct a Neighborhood Watch meeting
- The process of getting Neighborhood Watch signs posted on your street
- The many ways that the Police Department & City staff are here to help
- Fun and educational ways to gather your neighbors together
- Other community building opportunities
Refreshments will be served.
This workshop will equip participants with everything they need to start a Neighborhood Watch group in Redwood City, including tons of resources, sample flyers and letters, and ideas about how to make the Neighborhood Watch meetings both productive, and fun. And, participants who have the desire to build community within their neighborhood can arrive 15 minutes before the meeting (at 6:45 pm), or stay a few minutes after the meeting to find out more about becoming a Neighborhood Liaison.
