Meeting to organize the Community Watch (11/18/09)

Our first Community Watch meeting had a reasonably good turnout of homeowners interested in the Watch program. Capt. Loftin of the Conover Police gave a good presentation and talk regarding the Watch program, the benefits of it, etc. The meeting took place in the new conference room of the Conover Police Department. We have been invited to use this modern meeting facility for future Watch meetings and other meetings involving the neighborhood.

We will be picking a date in late January to have our first organization meeting to select block captains and a manager for the Watch program. The Conover Police will be delivering a flyer to your door regarding this meeting, inviting you to attend and be part of our Community Watch, and explaining the benefits of attending and being involved - if you are interested.

During the meeting last night we became aware of several issues that residents at Pipers should be aware of. These included a theft of car wheels, guns being fired too close to our homes, suspicious activity in our undeveloped cul de sacs, an attempted break-in that was thwarted, and most of all - speeding and reckless driving thru the neighborhood. Capt. Loftin explained the best way to handle situations like these to prevent them from developing into more serious problems.

If you have any thoughts on the subject of our Neighborhood Watch, or would like to sign up to be a member and participant, please email us at
