Haverstraw village, in conjunction with the Haverstraw Town Police Department, is seeking to establish a village neighborhood watch program.
Residents who are interested in participating in the program are encouraged to attend an orientation meeting at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 4 at the 2nd floor meeting room at Haverstraw Village Hall at 40 New Main St.
The village held its first orientation meeting for the program in November.
Mayor Michael Kohut said he decided to hold another meeting because the program needed more participation.
Kohut said he was hoping that this program would help Haverstraw police tackle crimes in the village.
“The police cannot do it all by themselves. They need our eyes and ears to assist them since they cannot be everywhere at the same time,” Kohut said in his statement. “By taking responsibility for our own neighborhoods, we can help remove the thereat of drugs and crime in the village and make life in Haverstraw better for everyone, except for the bad guys.”
He added: “Please join us on February 4th to make this program a reality.”
Call Village Hall at 845-429-0300 for more information.
