State Sen. Martin Sandoval (D-11th) was the special guest speaker at a recent Summit Neighborhood Watch Group meeting.
The senator passed out blue ribbons and neighborhood watch signs to kick-off the “Believe in Blue” campaign and spoke on the importance of supporting and working with our local police.
“I salute our brave men and women who work hard to keep our community safe,” said Sandoval. “But our law enforcement officers can only do so much, we need more people to do their part as well.”
Sandoval suggested having three neighborhood watch groups, each group hosting their own meeting at their corresponding precinct in the village, for better coverage of the area.
“One of our most important responsibilities as a community is fighting to keep our neighborhoods safe. This requires teamwork, cooperation and looking out for one another. I strongly encourage village residents to participate in the neighborhood watch program,” Sandoval said.
More than two dozen people attended the meeting.
The Summit Neighborhood Watch Group holds meetings on the third Thursday of every month, except December, at 6:30 p.m. in the courthouse next to the Summit Police Department. The meetings last approximately one hour. Everyone is welcome.
