Area 4 Neighborhood Watch Meeting set for Wednesday

LANCASTER – The City of Lancaster will host an Area Four Neighborhood Watch Group Meeting, Wednesday, September 26 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Lancaster National Soccer Center (43000 30th Street East).

Area Four comprises the portion of the city encompassing Avenue J to Avenue L, and from Sierra Highway to 40th Street East.

Community members interested in learning how they can help reduce crime, while improving the safety of their neighborhoods are encouraged to attend.  The meeting will inform and educate residents of the many benefits of participating in the Neighborhood Watch Program while providing a forum to discuss the specific needs of Area Four.

“The numerous involved residents participating in our 236 Neighborhood Watch Programs across Lancaster have played a significant role in helping to reduce crime throughout our city,” said Mayor R. Rex Parris.  “Such community involvement is a necessary ingredient to our continued success.”

The City of Lancaster includes four Community Oriented Response & Enforcement (CORE) areas, each supported by an experienced LA County Sheriff’s Department deputy assigned to resolve problems faced by the residents in their area.

“The City’s Neighborhood Watch Program serves to open the lines of communication between neighbors, local law enforcement, and City officials,” added Lee D’Errico, Public Safety Manager for the City of Lancaster. “These groups facilitate citizens getting to know each other, their neighbors, and neighborhoods; which leads to greater involvement, awareness, and protection.”

    We on our two streets seem to have a good amount of coverage but when I tried to expand on to the steets a few blocks from mine there was little to no interest. I would suggest if you are not involved in a active watch at least have 3-4 people on your street to talk with and or be eyes and ears when people are away.I have lived in this neighborhood since 1997 and it has changed a bit…maybe not for the best. Good idea to support the watch and the local Sheriff’s in keeping it under control.
