Carey said the program used to be in place, but fell by the wayside.  “We’re going to try and get it back up and get neighbors out visiting neighbors, so if something odd or something illegal happens in the neighborhood, they can maybe call the police and give us a head’s up and jumps start on whatever the problem is,” said Carey, “And maybe we can catch the perpetrators before they get too far along and into more criminal activity.”

Carey says police, fire, or parks department personnel will be available to attend any Community Block Parties.  “It gives the Police and City Officials the chance to get out and meet the public,” said Carey.
