Roads End Neighborhood Watch
A neighborhood watch program is a group of people living in the same area who want to make their neighborhood safer by working together and in conjunction with local law enforcement to reduce crime and improve their quality of life.
While REIA helped kick this off, the Neighborhood Watch program is 100% separate from REIA with a focus on crime prevention and preparedness and via regular monthly meetings.
Neighborhood watch groups have regular meetings to plan how they will accomplish their specific goals and leaders with assigned responsibilities. Neighborhood watch is homeland security at the most local level. It is an opportunity to volunteer and work towards increasing the safety and security of our homes and our homeland.
Neighborhood watch empowers citizens and communities to become active in emergency preparedness, as well as the fight against crime and community disasters.
As of December 2019, new signs went up in Roads End (Lincoln City Public Works did the installation) to indicate a neighborhood watch program is in effect. These replaced the older style (and mostly worn out) signs.
Roads End Improvement Association (former) Board member Marie McFarland started the neighborhood watch program. Marie coordinated her efforts through Lincoln City police chief Jerry Palmer and members of his department along with a committee of Roads End residents.
Roads End Neighborhood Watch maintains a Group on Nextdoor here. All updates and monthly meeting details can be found on the Group page. All Roads End residents and property owners are encouraged to join.
