Monday will be proclaimed as Neighborhood watch day in the city and county.
"If we across our county had active neighborhood watch programs, what a partnership that would be for law enforcement in helping us, perhaps not eradicating crime, but certainly to lessen the rash of burglaries and other kinds of crimes that we're seeing throughout the community," said County Commissioner John Hayes.
Neighborhood watch leaders are asked to contact either the city or county clerk for information about the meeting.
It will be Monday after the 10 o'clock county commission meeting.
