SHPD introducing revamped Neighborhood Watch program
January 6, 2021
The Sweet Home Police Department is rolling out a revamped neighborhood watch program in an effort to reduce crime rates in neighborhoods across the city.
The idea of a neighborhood watch is to have "neighbors coming together to look out for each other," said Community Services Officer Sean Morgan. "It provides a direct connection between law enforcement and the neighborhood and vice versa."
A major benefit of the program will be a comprehensive phone tree for the neighborhood, so that if a child goes missing, the entire neighborhood can go on alert to look for them relatively quickly.
