The second Neighborhood Watch meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, February 9 at St. Mark’s Church. The meeting will begin at 7:00 PM and should last about one hour.

We invite all Barton Hills and Zilker residents to attend. We also hope you will share this invitation with your neighbors who may not be receiving information via the listserve as we will be sharing information to help reduce criminal activity within our neighborhood and we would like all residents to attend.

The general agenda for the meeting will consist of the following topics:

  • Orientation to Neighborhood Watch; what it is and what it is not.
  • Meeting your neighbors who share a common interest and concern or the safety and well being of our neighborhood.
  • How working with adjacent neighborhoods in crime prevention programs makes us all more secure.
  • Information about techniques for observation and reporting of suspicious persons or vehicles.
  • Question and answers related to home security; things you can do yourself at low cost.

Our last Neighborhood Watch meeting was very popular with over 80 people attending. The February 9 meeting is in response to requests for additional information on crime and safety within our neighborhoods.

Come and bring a neighbor. Be part of the solution. You will be amazed at what neighbors looking out for neighbors can do.

I Hope To See You There,
John Luther, Chair
