Low-Costs Innovations: Proud: Giving Neighborhoods A Fresh Start

For years, the nationally recognized Neighborhood Watch program provided Morrow’s residents with knowledge of crime prevention techniques. Sadly, the program was not maintaining its initial enthusiasm; neighborhoods were no longer holding meetings, which is where residents had been learning about crime prevention and getting to know their neighbors. Morrow police officers wanted to create a program that would cover crime prevention and also teach residents the importance of maintaining their property value, improving quality of life in a community, and knowing one another’s neighbors. The officers also wanted the residents to know them.
