A handful of residents attended a block watch organizational meeting April 5.
But the low attendance didn’t discourage organizers who plan a second meeting Monday, April 26. The meeting, like the first one, will be at 7 p.m. at Hodgenville City Hall.
Guest speaker Bryce Shumate, media relations officer for Radcliff City Police, said block watches have been successful in reducing vandalism, break-ins and thefts across the country. Crime rates have been lowered as much as 50 percent in communities sporting a “You are being watched” sign.
