Box 325, Norwalk, IA50211 Member of: National Newspaper Association Iowa Newspaper Association POLICE CHIEF " Concluded from p. 1 nal acts that go unanswered can lead to larger issues. Neglected properties or neglected issues can lead to more of the same. The Norwalk Police Department is interested in your quality of life. We want your neigh- borhood to be safe, crime free, peaceful and quiet. Work- ing together we can keep it that way. 2) Talk to your neighbors about neighborhood is- sues. The premise of a neighborhood watch is not armed citizens on patrol. A neighborhood watch is just that: neighbors paying attention to what is happening around them. Criminals know when a community talks and so- cializes with each other. They don't like it and tend to stay away. If you see a suspicious person or vehicle, call us AND tell your neighbors• The more eyes paying at- tention, the less chance for crime and disorder to grow and prosper• 3) Invite a police officer to attend/speak at a future meeting or event. Community policing involves the community and the police working together [o solve mutual issues of interest. This is best accomplished through open dialog and communication. The officers of the department and I are very interested in attending or speaking at your group gathering. I believe that the chief of police should be approachable and available to the community. Therefore, I personally welcome all in- vitarions to speak at events or attend group meetings. Positive relationships between the community and the police are key components of crime control. Don't hesi- tate to ask for us to participate. My first month in Norwalk has been a great experi- ence and I anticipate many more months of the same. I look forward to meeting everyone soplease give us a call at Public Safety building. Together we can keep Norwalk the great place it already is. NSEF Concluded from p. 1 Vida Loca Winery.
