Floyd County Police encouraging communities to help form Neighborhood Watch programs:
On Facebook, the police department is urging its nearly 12,000 followers to see if others in their area are interested. “The first step is finding several people with the same interest who can be in your group. Then contact us and we can come visit and share more details,” police say in one response to an interested area resident.
One such group meet with the police department in mid-August. “Had a great first meeting tonight with a group of neighbors who are starting a neighborhood watch. Send us a message if you’re interested in being a part of making your neighborhood better.”
So far, groups in Shannon and Little Texas Valley have met with the police department and four others have contacted the agency about forming Neighborhood Watch programs, says Sgt. Chris Fincher, a guest on Tuesday’s Hometown Headlines Radio Edition on WRGA 98.7 FM.
