Summertime is when crime rates tend to go up.
It’s just a fact. This isn’t unique to Winston-Salem.
Causes frequently mentioned include kids being out of school, a change in daylight hours, people leaving for week-long vacations.
You can even blame the weather:
People have a tendency to leave windows open when they go out for a few hours.
Our city police department’s preparations for summer take all of this into account and they plan accordingly. You can, too.
The basic idea of the Neighborhood Watch program will be summarized:”Neighbors Looking Out for Each Other.”
Helping to start a Neighborhood Watch group in your section of Ardmore is one option.
There are plenty of other steps you can take to reduce the odds that you and your family might be the ones dealing with the aftermath of a home invasion or some kind of property theft.
Invest an hour, come sit with some of your neighbors and find out more.
Presenters from the Winston-Salem Police Department will include:
Cptn. Doug Nance, captain of District 3 (which includes Ardmore) and
Cpl. Scott Boak, Community Resources Unit/Neighborhood Watch Coordinator
Other members of the Winston-Salem Police Department will be on hand to answer questions and share their crime prevention recommendations.
