[ARCHIVED] Timberline/Fernwood Neigborhood Watch - March 5 Meeting

Flagstaff, AZ – Coconino County Sheriff Bill Pribil and Coconino County Supervisor Liz Archuleta would like to invite residents of the Timberline and Fernwood communities to the monthly Neighborhood Watch meeting on Tuesday, March 5, 2013. The meeting will be held from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM at Summit Fire Station 33, located at 6050 Firehouse Lane, off of Highway 89 North. Sheriff Bill Pribil and members of his staff will be at the meeting to encourage continued neighborhood participation and to share information.

Coconino County Sheriff’s Deputy Robert Smith who serves as the Timberline Neighborhood Watch Facilitator will present information on current and local trends in Mail Fraud, Telephone Scams and Identity theft.

Neighborhood Watch is similar to the Block Watch program commonly conducted in urban areas, and goes back to the concept of “neighbors looking out for neighbors” that many people remember from 30 years ago. It is one of the most effective ways to prevent and deter criminal activity, attend to home and personal security, address the safety of our children and the elderly, and to alleviate fear and isolation. Residents learn how to observe and report suspicious activity and reduce the risk of becoming a crime victim.

For more information about the Neighborhood Watch program and the meeting schedule, please call the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office at (928) 226-5089.
