Neighborhood Watch Adapts To Covid-19

Neighborhood Watch continues but with some changes to the way it functions. Our teams are made up of two individuals who ride around the neighborhood and observe the area.  Most of our teams share the same house and car so there’s not much added danger of sharing stray germs.  But we do have some teams that do not share the same residence, and spending two hours in a car may not be to their best interest for a while.

We will improve our “social separation” by no longer passing the “blue bag” with the rotating lantern and the report sheets on to the next person on the schedule.  So until things improve, you won’t see the familiar flashing yellow light that normally identifies a neighborhood watch vehicle. In the meantime, volunteers will continue to schedule, observe, and report (via email.)
