Neighborhood Watch

September 14th, 2010

Because of a recent rash of burglaries in our area, my block recently put up a neighborhood watch. It was resolved at a meeting that we should be able to help ourselves and not simply rely on the police to do the job for us. Instead of firearms, each night a couple of watchmen are equipped with their own stun batons to carry around the neighborhood. We all take turns on different days. We all still have our security systems, of course, and I keep all of my valuables safely stowed in my high-tech TL-30 safe.

Aside from keeping our neighborhood safe, I believe that this project has brought the members of our community closer to each other. Many friendships have been formed. There are other projects in the works too, such as a composting pile at a vacant lot in our street.
