Central City Police Urges Local Citizens to Take Part in Neighborhood Watch 

MUHLENBERG COUNTY, Ky. (02/27/15) – Central City Police Chief Brent Roberson spoke with KenCo News recently regarding some changes to the local Neighborhood Watch programs, and the importance of local citizens being involved.

Chief Roberson stated that the Central City Police Department (CCPD) has recently taken over the city Neighborhood Watch program.

“I would like to urge all citizens of Central City to do their part and partner up with us,” said Chief Roberson. “We need you to help make our city a safer place to live.”

All too often, local citizens will see things taking place that they are unsure of, and will hesitate to call the police in the matter. This is where the term, “Better Safe than Sorry,” comes into effect. In a worst case scenario, the police will investigate and find out that nothing is wrong. No one will get in trouble, including the caller. On the other hand, one must consider the fact that if suspicious activity is going on and it turns out to be something serious, those calling could prevent some extreme crimes that might take place in the future. You might even save a life.

The Neighborhood Watch program is very strongly oriented towards local citizens being involved instead of sitting back and watching as crime rates rise.

The Central City Police Department would like to invite Central City citizens to the next Neighborhood Watch monthly meeting. This meeting will be held at the Central City Convention Center on Tuesday, March 17, at 6:00 PM, and all residents are invited to attend and to participate. Further meetings will be held on the third Tuesday of every month.

You can make a difference.

You can report suspicious activity anonymously by calling 188kytips or 270-338-2000.
