KENMORE NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH
CONTACT:
Lt. Sheila Kirsch
(716) 875-1234

 

The Village of Kenmore Police Department initiated its Neighborhood Watch program in 1982. Initially, there was only one group in the program known as the Kenton-Courier Crime Watch. By 1984, three more groups were organized, referred to as the Kenmore Watchdogs, the Mang Park Care Bears, and the Del-Elm Neighborhood Watch. With these additions, nearly all of the streets in the Village had become part of a watch program. The entire Village was represented with the inclusion of the Wardman Road Crime Watch and the Kenmore Crime Busters. All of the individual groups have now joined into a single entity, known as the KENMORE NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH ORGANIZATION.

The group is comprised of volunteer residents, who are educated as to signs of criminal activity. Through the efforts of these incredible volunteers, Neighborhood Watch signs were erected throughout the Village. Volunteers distributed thousands of slingers to announce meeting dates and alerting their neighbors to specific security problems.

Working with the Kenmore Police Department, these dedicated, community-minded citizens offer the following services:

 

  1. Security Surveys. A police officer and/or trained volunteers will go to a home, at a homeowner's request, and give advice as to how to better secure the property to reduce the likelihood of a burglary.
  2. CB Patrol. Under this program, trained and approved volunteers patrol the Village in private vehicles, using two-way radios for communication. Their purpose is to patrol neighborhoods looking for "crime opportunities" such as unlit homes, open garage doors. Their findings are reported to the police, who in turn, contact the residents.
  3. Operation Identification. A program wherein an electric engraver is made available to residents for the purpose of marking their valuables with an "owner assigned number". This number is entered into a computer file and can be used to help identify and recover lost or stolen proper

MEETING TIMES

The NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH meets on the second Tuesday of every month, from September through June. Meetings are held in the Kenmore Community Center, 135 Wilbur Avenue, and begin at 7:00 p.m.

 

We urge all residents to join the NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH program so that we can work together to keep Kenmore a safe community.
