Neighborhood Watch Programs


We held a follow-up meeting on the topic of Neighborhood Watch Programs [NWPs] on May 23, 2023, to discuss what, if anything, we might want to do, in addition to what we are already doing, to address our sense of an increase in criminal activities in Parkwood.  [See next item on this page regarding the first meeting on NWPs held March 29, 2023.]

A summary of the discussion and action items that came out of that meeting can be found here.
