There’s a wonderful website called NextDoor.com which allows you to interact with your neighbors. It’s free. Sign up and get real-time updates from your local police and neighbors regarding crime, lost dogs, free stuff people are giving away and anything going on in our neighborhood. It’s like a virtual Neighborhood Watch and then some. There’s even a phone app to download for your smart phone.
Of course we still have Neighborhood Watch. Karyl Miller is Block Captain for Pacific Tower and posts updates from our Police Chief and others on our laundry room bulletin boards. The Neighborhood Watch head for all the PB neighborhoods is Marcella Teran firstname.lastname@example.org. Marcella also sits on the new Police Advisory board.
If you have no computer and need to contact any city service just dial 211 and ask.
