Merrihill Community Neighborhood Watch Program success!

Thank you for publishing the article by Officer Longo.

In conjunction with other law enforcement agencies, and with the help of concerned and active citizens, our community has been made a safer and more pleasant place to live. Neighborhood watch also has the added benefit of getting you out of your house and meeting new people. It is amazing how we can live next door to someone for years yet they remain a stranger.

Yes, it definitely is a team effort. It is vital that all team players remember the greater goal: an improvement in the quality of life.
