The Pinecrest Police Department has renewed its crime prevention program and is urging all neighborhoods in the Village to organize and form a “neighbors looking out for neighbors” group.
Some call it Crime Watch, others call it Neighborhood Watch. The goal is the same — stop crime from occurring in our neighborhoods. While overall, crime is down in Pinecrest, there has been an alarming increase in home break-ins, car vandalism and petty thievery. And it is endless.
Village police will knock themselves out to help you get organized, including helping to organize a block party to show their appreciation. These are pictures of Pinecrest’s newest neighborhood crime watch group’s Block Party held at my home on SW 123 Street.
It was great getting to know neighbors and be a part of an effort to make our Village a safer place. More than 70 people attended, including several Village officials.
To form a Neighborhood Crime Watch group, contact the Pinecrest Police Crime Prevention Unit at 305-234-2100.
