Neighborhood Watch Administrator Needed

NWNeighborhood watch is one of the oldest and most effective crime prevention programs in the country, bringing citizens together with law enforcement to deter crime and make communities safer. In areas with active neighborhood watch groups, the opportunity for criminal activity is significantly reduced. “This is a great opportunity for residents to get more involved in the safety of their community,” said Deputy Joe Greiner. “Residents can make a significant difference just by working together and educating themselves about their own personal safety and about the safety of those around them.”

Address Signs

The Elyria Township Neighborhood Watch is asking all residents to install a green reflective address sign. These signs are easily seen at night and are designed to assist emergency personnel in finding the correct house when an emergency arises. The neighborhood Watch group pays $12 for each sign and sells them for $10.

The Elyria Township Neighborhood Watch Committee is offering retired senior citizens a free sign. Supplies are limited and are available on a first come, first served basis. For more information call Rob Scheithauer at 440.315.3844 or email rscheithauer@elyriatownship.com.

If you need help with sign installation, simply let us know.
