From a Manhattan Beach Police Department press release:
On Wednesday, April 30, 2014, from 7:00 - 8:30 PM at the Joslyn Center (1601 Valley Drive, Manhattan Beach), the Neighborhood Watch program of Manhattan Beach Police Department would like to invite residents of Manhattan Beach to an informational meeting about crime in the city and the Neighborhood Watch program.
Residents, who have an interest in learning more about Manhattan Beach Neighborhood Watch and how to join with hundreds of others in the prevention of crime, are welcomed and encouraged to attend.
For over 30 years, Neighborhood Watch has worked tirelessly to involve the community in home/personal safety education, deterring crime and looking out for one another.
Although there are nearly 500 Block Captains, there are many streets without a volunteer and those neighbors are not receiving important crime and safety information. A volunteer Block Captain is essential to the continued success of Neighborhood Watch and communication between the residents and police department.
During the meeting, residents will hear from Manhattan Beach Neighborhood Watch Director Charlotte Lesser, Chief of Police Eve R. Irvine, Manhattan Beach Police Detectives and members of the Police Department's Crime Impact Team.
For more information, please call Manhattan Beach Neighborhood Watch at (310) 802-5183 or (310) 802-5184.
