THURSDAY - MARCH 19, 6:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M.

Holmes Beach Police Chief Bill Tokajer wants to know if the residents of the community would like to participate in a Neighborhood Watch program.  To judge the popularity of the idea, a resident forum will be conducted and held in the Patricia A. Geyer Commission Chambers, 5801 Marina Drive, Holmes Beach, on THURSDAY, MARCH 19 - 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

It has been proven that the Neighborhood Watch program is a powerful means of combating all types of criminal offenses in residential areas.  It is one of the most effective and least expensive ways to prevent crime and reduce fear.  It also forges bonds among area residents; helps reduce burglaries, robberies, and thefts from vehicles; and improves relations between law enforcement and the community.  According to Chief Tokajer, "Stopping crime is everyone's business.  If you do your part in neighborhood crime prevention, you'll be doing yourself and your community a big favor.  To have a true Neighborhood Watch program, the neighborhood has to be willing to receive training to be certified and hold periodic meetings as needed."

Any Holmes Beach resident can attend and learn how to make their homes more secure, how to watch out for each other and the neighborhood, and report activities that raise their suspicions.  In addition, with the dramatic increase in the numbers of golf carts and bicycles on the City streets this time of the year, the Chief also plans to discuss golf cart and bike safety during the forum.

The Forum is open to the Public.  More than one City Commissioner and/or Holmes Beach committee member may be in attendance.
