Neighborhood Watch and Stranger Danger programs to be organized — Meeting on May 11th

NOTE: The location is at the School House.

A Neighborhood Watch is an organized group of citizens devoted to the prevention of crime and vandalism within a neighborhood.   When suspecting criminal activities members are to contact authorities and not to intervene.

Stranger Danger program is a program organized to instruct parents and their children in the dangers of strangers.  It focuses on instructions to the youth how to recognize and avoid situations and how parents can protect their children.

The Canton Township Police Department, Community Relations officer, has offered to conduct the meeting to instruct Cherry Hill Village on how to organize each program.

Jessica Fessler will chair the Stranger Danger Program.  Jay Wilson will chair the Neighborhood Watch Program.

We look forward to having all interested residents attend to make this a successful start.

The program will be held at the Old Schoolhouse (corner of Cherry Hill and Ridge Rd.).

The date is May 11 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM.

    Prevention is always a notion to support, and a neighborhood working in cooperation makes for a strong neighborhood. While crimes minimal in CHV, building relations in the village is a first order effect of this worthy activity. I will try to make the meeting, but partly expect to be out-of-town. I will be helpful otherwise in anyway.

    Did anything ever develop after this meeting?

    Hi Steve — You can follow up directly with Ed Krupa (contact above) about the Neighborhood Watch, but I know that the Stranger Danger program got very little interest (I think only 2 people showed up).
