Laurel Oaks Neighborhood Association
Getting involved in the Watch is easy – Be A.L.E.R.T. and do the ‘Five’.
I know who my neighbors and who their kids are. I know what cars belong on my street.
My house is well lit at night. I have installed motion detectors or dusk to dawn lights in areas where people may walk.
I am ready for a crisis and keep neighbors phone numbers handy, just in case. I know neighbors’ kids would come to my house for help. I could tell the firefighters how many pets and kids to save if there was a fire on my street.
I call 311 and 911 when I see a potential issue. I ask for an incident number and report it to the Watch so it can be recorded. I bring bigger issues to my Neighborhood Association so the community is aware of what is happening.
I keep my street and my home neat. I trim my bushes and trees so windows and doors can be seen. I keep my drive and porch free of clutter. I pick up trash on my street, handle graffiti, and pitch in to help other neighbors who need a hand. I want criminals to see that my street is loved and their activities will not be tolerated!
