Police Chief Doug Diamond is looking for Leaders
Want to have a significant impact on your community? Want to help reduce crime and work proactively with the Police Department? Then I need your help.
If you are ready to take an active role in your community, I want you to be a Neighborhood Watch group Coordinator in your area. The Rancho Cordova Police Department has redesigned our Neighborhood Watch program and we have an exciting agenda planned for 2009.
Neighborhood Watch is a proven program that reduces crime and blight in neighborhoods. Currently, there are sixty-three Neighborhood Watch groups in Rancho Cordova. A typical Neighborhood Watch coordinator manages 10 – 15 households, and with 23,000 households in Rancho Cordova, that leaves room for expansion. Coordinators also work within apartment complexes.
Who can be a Coordinator?
What does a Coordinator do?
Neighborhood Watch Coordinators don’t do it all themselves. They can, and we suggest they do, delegate responsibilities to their neighbors. Coordinators manage different aspects of the Neighborhood Watch duties. Some Coordinators delegate the responsibility to coordinate block parties; forward e-mail messages to the other members; and to write and distribute newsletters. When more neighbors are involved it creates a strong neighborhood bond. Working and communicating with your neighbors is what Neighborhood Watch is all about.
What do I get out of it?
You will gain knowledge and experience in coordination efforts and delegation duties while improving your communication skills and strengthening your neighborhood.
I challenge you to take a leadership role and help to establish safe neighborhoods free of crime and blight while improving the communities of Rancho Cordova.
I want to join. What’s the next step?
