    Community encourages crime watch groups

    The city on Tuesday will hold the third in a series of ward-level community meetings to energize neighborhood crime watch groups and encourage the creation of new ones. The event will be held at 6 p.m. at the American Legion building, 249 Broadway. Though aimed primarily for Ward 4 residents, it is open to all. More than 100 people turned out for the most recent meeting, which was held at Whelan Elementary School for Ward 6 residents. As a result of the meeting, small crime-watch groups are starting in the area, according to city officials.
