Mayor Yaede Announces Launch of Virtual Neighborhood Watch Program
Today, Hamilton Township Mayor Kelly A. Yaede announced the launch of Hamilton Township’s new Virtual Neighborhood Watch Program that is designed to bring important crime prevention tips and information right to residents’ fingertips.
“Today, I am pleased to announce that a new initiative designed to bring important crime prevention tips and information right to residents’ fingertips has been launched,” said Mayor Yaede. “Our new Virtual Neighborhood Watch Program will provide the information shared at Neighborhood Watch meetings held throughout Hamilton Township to all Hamiltonians, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This new program is aimed at arming residents with information and knowledge to be proactive in the fight against crime.”
Hamilton Township’s new Virtual Neighborhood Watch Program may be found by visiting www.hamiltonnj.com and clicking on the Virtual Neighborhood Watch button on the right-hand side of the homepage. Once the program is accessed users will find a variety of crime prevention tips and information concerning things such as securing your home, preventing auto theft, child safety and identifying scams. These topics are the same topics discussed at the Neighborhood Watch meetings held throughout Hamilton Township in the spring and fall. Other information may also be found on the site, such as the Neighborhood Watch meeting schedule and an application for residents to join their local Neighborhood Watch group.
“Over the last several months, we have seen an increase in burglaries in Hamilton Township. The launching of this Virtual Neighborhood Watch Program will allow our collective efforts and the partnership between the Police and our community to strengthen and have greater success at preventing crime before it occurs,” Mayor Yaede commented. “When I became Mayor I said that I would be proactive and work with the Police to make Hamilton Township as safe as possible. This new program is just the latest example that we will not rest when it comes to matters of public safety,” Yaede concluded.
