Have you ever looked out your window to see what the activity is on your street? Do you keep a keen eye on suspicious cars or passerbys when you walk your dog or take a leisurely stroll?
If you said yes, then you might be our next Crime Watch volunteer!
Crime is prevalent in Olde North Charleston Neighborhood. At Tuesday’s meeting we heard Deputy Chief Cheatle report that violent crime continues to decrease year after year. But even still Olde North Charleston regularly shows up on the Police Department’s COMP STAT (department wide bi-monthly meeting to address high crime areas of the city) and we now have a regular Neighborhood Resource Officer assigned to our neighborhood to keep watch (We love you Officer Tilton!!) .
The solution to decreasing crime is YOU!!! Community policing is high on Chief Zumalt’s priority list and it requires citizen volunteers to engage and take action.
Come to the first crime watch branch committee meeting this Tuesday to find out how you can be a part of the solution.
The meeting is at the Meeting Place at 1077 East Montague Avenue at 6:00pm.
We will keep the meeting to an hour. This meeting is intended to meet as a group, share ideas about what we want to accomplish, develop a vision for the neighborhood in terms of crime and safety, and to discuss logistics. In particular August 2nd is around the corner and our first opportunity to raise awareness among the residents. Olde North Charleston is signed up to participate in National Night Out. We will need your help
Officer Brian West will accompany us and share NCPD resources available as well.
I hope to see you this Tuesday.
