>At the last PNA General meeting, Mary Tompkins of the City of Portland spoke about how to organize a neighborhood watch. Mary Tompkins provides 1.5 hrs of training for you and your neighbors and helps you organize your phone trees. Residents are encouraged to contact Mary Tompkins directly at MARY.THOMPKINS@CI.PORTLAND.OR.US
I, for one, am going to work with my neighbors on setting this up for our little corner of the world (yes, I’m looking at you Brock!). You can read a guide on the neighborhood watch program HERE (warning…large PDF file).
