On May 5, the County Police Officer Denise Gill spoke at a Rock Creek Hills Citizens Association meeting, explaining how to prevent home and car break-ins and other crimes via Neighborhood Watch (NW) programs. After a number of recent incidents, residents concerned about the likely increase during the warm weather seasons are beginning to organize NW groups. Some NW groups have been active years ago in Rock Creek Hills, but need to be re-started. Aware and alert neighbors provide the best line of defense against these crimes of opportunity. This won’t happen without volunteers. For residents interested in learning more, and possibly willing to become NW block captains, please call Jacquie Borda at 301-587-0235.
