Community watch meetings focus on providing safety information and tips to the public in an effort to help keep citizens safe. These meetings provide an opportunity for the public to address representatives of the Police Department with their concerns and gratitude. It also enables neighbors to get to know each other as well as the police officers serving their communities.
