Neighborhood Watch New Co-Chairs Named

The Community is very fortunate to welcome Jan Causey and Pat Dipinto as your Neighborhood Watch Co-Chairs.  Jan will be distributing information to all homeowners asking for your help. 

With safety, security and protection of property paramount, the River Watch Neighborhood Watch program needs your eyes and ears. While we have police protection, police officers are a limited resource and we cannot reasonably expect them to police our neighborhood 24/7/365. 

Therefore, a full-time resource, that can and should be utilized as an extension of the Police Department are concerned and watchful residents.

All you have to do is keep your eyes open and if you see anything that doesn’t look right (suspicious vehicle, persons and/or activity) call the police. And best of all, it’s free. So, if you would like to join, have questions, issues or concerns you can contact:
