The Neighborhood Watch meeting was held on Thursday evening at the Rec Center in Colorado City. Lt. Clifford Kindred, Day Watch Commander of the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office, and Cindy Schafer, Greenhorn Valley Neighborhood Watch Coordinator, talked about the many ways that the Neighborhood Watch programs have proven to be an effective tool in reducing the incidence of residential burglaries and other crimes.

They both stressed the importance of having a reflective address sign in the front of your home with the street number printed on it so that it is readable from the street. This is very helpful in case of an emergency where an ambulance, fire truck, police officer or other emergency help is trying to get to you quickly. This is sometimes a matter of life or death when they aren’t able to find the address soon enough.

The Watch Program is overseen by the Sheriff’s Office but is run by the coordinator from your community. Get to know them and please contact them with any questions or concerns you may have. The Sheriff’s office says, “We are here to provide the information you need to help make our community a safer place in which to live. And feel that the Neighborhood Watch program is the cornerstone of all crime prevention programs. It enlists the active participation of citizens in cooperation with law enforcement to reduce burglaries and other neighborhood crimes. Its primary purpose is the protection of property--yours and your neighbors."
