Timberline/Fernwood Neighborhood Watch Meeting - Tuesday, June 4, 2013 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at Summit Fire Station #33
Doney Park Neighborhood Watch Meeting - Thursday, June 6, 2013, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Cromer School
Flagstaff, AZ – Coconino County Sheriff Bill Pribil, Supervisor Mandy Metzger (Doney Park area), and Supervisor Liz Archuleta (Timberline/Fernwood area) would like to invite residents to the June 2013 Neighborhood Watch Meetings.
Coconino County Sheriff Bill Pribil will be at the meeting to encourage continued neighborhood participation and to share information. Community Deputies will be available to answer questions and provide support to this partnership between law abiding citizens, law enforcement and county government.
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 will 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.
