Neighborhood Watch Training: November 21 in Trinidad

Neighborhood Watch is a community-based crime prevention program where neighbors look out for each other’s safety, property and homes in a systematic and sustained way. It is based on the idea that when residents, businesses, clergy, police and other partners look out for the safety of the neighborhood, establish and maintain open lines of communication, and collaborate to resolve problems of crime and disorder, they create safer, friendlier and healthier neighborhoods.You can learn more about the overall program or download the training manual on the MPD website.

There will be a free neighborhood watch training session at the Trinidad Recreation Center on November 21st at 11 am. We encourage you to attend. This will be a good resource for the community and a way we can all help reduce crime of opportunity in our neighborhood. See the message from Neighborhood Watch Trainer below for additional information and where to register for the training.

Message from Neighborhood Watch Trainer:

Neighborhood Watch Crime Prevention Training will be conducted at the following locations on the dates and times noted. They are free trainings open to anyone interested in reducing crime. Please let me know if you are coming though as hand-outs are prepared based on the number of participants, and space is limited.

If you want to learn ways to prevent crime and reduce your likelihood of becoming a crime victim, please attend the training. You will see pictures of actual crime scenes and learn how to avoid becoming a victim of the crimes. More than 80% of crime in DC is preventable (Crime of Opportunity). By reducing these crimes, the police can concentrate on preventing and solving more violent crimes. You will also learn how to become a block captain, and how to start Neighborhood Watch on your block.

If you would like to attend the training, please contact me by email at NolanTutor@yahoo.com.

I hope to see you at a training. Remember to email me if you would like to attend.
