Police set to explain neighborhood crime prevention program
Rincon Home Watch

RINCON -- The Rincon Police Department is set to host the Rincon Home Watch Summit on Thursday from 6-9 p..m.. 

This meeting of the minds at Compassion Christian Church on Fort Howard Road is intended to explain the new Rincon Home Watch program and allow participating neighborhoods along with law enforcement officials to get together and discuss strategies.

 Rincon Home Watch is a crime prevention program that stresses education and common sense, teaching citizens how to help themselves by spotting and reporting suspicious activity in their neighborhoods. It is intended to help citizens to make their neighborhoods safer and improve the quality of life.

Rincon Home Watch yard signs will be given to each participating member and coffee and cookies will be provided by the Rincon Police Department. Crimestopper’s Director Larry Branson will also speak about the new expansion of the program to include Effingham County residents.
