Shawnee area Neighborhood Watch Meeting

Join the Shawnee Police Department on Tuesday August 26. From 6:30-8:30pm at the Gordon Cooper Vo-Tech Center Auditorium for information on Personal Safety. The event is open to everyone in the Shawnee area or anyone that is interested in learning about and participating in a Neighborhood Watch.

The Shawnee Police Department will be offering training the last week of the following months that you might want to know more about. Such as

• Crime prevention information.
• Block captain training and special events for all watch neighbors.
• Securing you home, making it less attractive to criminals.
• Property Identification, or also known as Operation I.D. It's where you mark your property using an engraver, with your driver's license number and state. The idea behind this is that it discourages theft and helps law enforcement identify and return stolen property when it is found or has been pawned.

For more information on these community meetings call the Shawnee Police Department, 273-2121
