Neighborhood Watching Coming to CH, Block Captains Needed

THL always supports a good crime-fighting cause, therefore we bring you this:

A new Neighborhood Watch is starting in Columbia Heights! Neighborhood Watch is a recognized way for concerned community members to get involved and make a difference. This community-based organization of citizens working together with law enforcement has helped prevent burglaries, thefts, and violent crimes nationwide for many years. Ordinary people agree to look out for their neighbors and their neighbors property. Through having assigned Block Captains, Neighborhood Watch facilitates communication to all neighborhood residents. Having Block Captains also makes it easier to organize community-based activities and events. NWCHCA Neighborhood Watch will work in close partnership with MPD PSA 302 to help make our neighborhood safer.

We need BLOCK CAPTAINS! Please become a Block Captain and come to the training. Everyone reading this knows at least one neighbor who would make a great Block Captain--please spread the word to them, and encourage them to come to the training on the 20th. To cover every block in Columbia Heights, we'll need HUNDREDS of Block Captains, so let's get started!!!

The first NWCHCA Neighborhood Watch Block Captains training session will be:

Date: Monday, July 20, 2009
Time: 7:00 to 8:30 PM
Location: St Stephen and the Incarnation Episcopal Church, 1525 Newton St NW, Washington, DC 20010
(usual NWCHCA meeting place: 16th St & Newton, Red Doors 16th-Street side, downstairs cafeteria)
