Upcoming Neighborhood Watch Meeting *Tonight*

The Neighborhood Watch Organization will be having a meeting at the Jarratt Fire Department in the meeting room on Wednesday, May 21, 2014, at 7:00 P.M.

A short program will be presented by the Virginia State Police Bomb Tech with the Bomb Truck.  This will be an excellent and very informative presentation.  With all the bomb scares we have had at our local schools this is a program we all need to learn about what happens when threats are called in, what to do, what to look for. Bomb threats can happen anywhere and any time.  Please pass the word around about this program, plan to attend and bring a few friends and neighbors.  Let’s show our support for the neighborhood watch program.

We all need to be aware of our surroundings and what is going on in our neighborhoods and community.

All residents in Jarratt, Greensville, Sussex Counties and Emporia are invited to attend this program.  Please come and voice your ideas to help our area to prevent crime and make our area a safer place to live and enjoy.

For additional information, or if you have any ideas for programs  you would like to have presented at the meeting, call: Dana Kinsley 434-535-8861 or Roderic Tuell 434-535-9191

Please tell your neighbors about this meeting and encourage them to attend.
