CH police department starts trial Block Watch program
On June 17, the Cleveland Heights Police Department launched a trial Block Watch program. Over a six-month trial period, the department will assist residents who want to create neighborhood watch groups.
Sgt. Ernest Williams of the CH Police Department said that residents can work with police to establish groups that cater to the specific needs of their neighborhoods. According to Williams, a few residents have already shown interest in the program. “It could bring a lot of advantages,” he said.
For more information, residents can contact the city’s Community Response Team at 216-291-4225.
