All of the Neighborhood Watch administrators are long time residents of the area and are dedicated to the development and running of the program for the benefit of the community we love.  We were not elected or appointed to our position but are volunteering our time and effort to a cause we feel is greatly needed by ourselves and our neighbors.

And we do not take our positions lightly.  Every time someone contacts us with information, questions or comments, it is reviewed by all of the administrators of the program and collectively we determine our response and the content of any alerts.  We are mindful to avoid gossip and speculation and do our best to confirm facts including consulting with law authorities if we find it necessary.  The Sheriff's Office has been very supportive and cooperative in these efforts.

We have long seen the need for our community to band together and to be extra vigilant in its' efforts to protect ourselves from crime.  We strongly believe that communication and awareness through that communication is the best means we have of achieving that goal.  This is what has motivated us to spend numerous hours developing the program and going door to door to get the word out that the system is available and its working.  We only ask that the community remember we are volunteers providing a communication network and we hold no authority over any criminal  or criminal activity in our community.
