Slocomb Neighborhood Watch Program

Neighborhood Watch is credited nationally with cutting down on residential break-ins' and it seems one such program is thriving in eastern Geneva County.

Melissa Bateman says she feels a bit safer in her Slocomb home on Arrington Street.

Two-years-ago, Bateman and several nearby residents formed a Neighborhood Watch program.

Police Chief David Land says it's been one of his main objectives; making criminals aware that citizens are taking back their streets.

Chief Land says he's continuing to look at expanding neighborhood watch programs in several additional sections of the city.

    Level Plains Auxillary Policemen might be interested in helping get the neighborhood watch program going good again. Where I live, some of us are just sort of looking out for each other, but the signs would also help deter some of the criminal element.

    This is a well known community Safety Program a Program Like this should be started in Level Plains. We are a small Community that could be brought together by the efforts of City Hall. A Neighborhood Watch Program would help deter crime and be a positive way to help our senior citizens How About City Hall??? Help us Help Ourselves.. Please!!
