Sheriff's Department Looking For Neighborhood Watch Volunteers

“Neighborhood Watch is the eyes and ears for the police within the community."

Would you be part of Lake Elsinore-Wildomar's Neighborhood Watch? Do you think Lake Elsinore-Wildomar needs a Neighborhood Watch program?

Councilwoman Bridgette Moore’s Facebook post is calling Lake Elsinore and Wildomar residents to attend a Neighborhood Watch meeting.

“A Neighborhood Watch Program can put the neighbor back into neighborhood by creating a sense of community,” Moore posted.

During a recent Wildomar City Council meeting, Lake Elsinore Sheriff's Station Captain Shelley Kennedy-Smith also urged citizens to turn out and learn more about the program that is designed to help keep neighborhoods safer.

The meeting will be on Wednesday, Feb. 6 at 6 p.m. at the Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Station at 333 W. Limited St. in Lake Elsinore.

“Neighborhood Watch is the eyes and ears for the police within the community. It brings citizens and law enforcement together to reduce crime,” Moore said.

Interesting that this topic came up. Our neighbors house got robbed during the day yesterday. Our neighbor came over and told us and asked if we heard anything. He said the police was on there way. Don't you think the police should have knocked on our door to ask questions or at least tell us the house next to us was broken into? Seriously, would be nice to be informed. I guess I should go around and knock on everyone's door to tell them???

Will someone from the Patch be at the meeting tonight to report?

Well, now the other neighbor next to us and 3 more on our street got robbed last week. What the heck? We thought we lived in a decent neighborhood? The police took almost 3 hours to come to the one neighbors house. Really???
