Community Neighborhood Watch Training Coming Up

neighborhood watch 300HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (3/6/13) – The Pennyrile Citizen Corps and the Christian County Sheriff's Department will conduct a Neighborhood Watch Training on Saturday, March 9, 2013 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The training will be held at Kelly Baptist Church, 7683 Madisonville Rd (HWY 41N).

Neighborhood Watch training is open to everyone in Christian County. Those with an interest in establishing a Neighborhood Watch program in their community are especially encouraged to attend this training, as are the citizens of the Kelly Community. A dinner of soup and sandwiches will be provided, and door prizes will be awarded. Attendees will receive a Neighborhood Watch training certificate. Be sure to plan to attend and invite your neighbors!

Captain Chris Miller the National Sheriff's Association Certified Neighborhood Watch Trainer from the Christian County Sheriff's department will present the Neighborhood Watch Tool kit training. Sheriff Livy Leavell says, "Neighborhood Watch works; I wish every community in Christian County had a Neighborhood Watch. No law enforcement agency can function effectively without the concerned assistance of responsible citizens. We are depending on you to call and tell us whenever you observe suspicious persons or actions."

What is Neighborhood Watch?

  • A network of neighbors trained by crime prevention officers in home and self-protection, suspect identification and how to serve effectively as additional eyes and ears for law enforcement agencies.
  • Neighborhood Watch works effectively at the block/community level because people can easily see, recognize, and cooperate. They can see and hear what activity is taking place across the street, next door, or at the property to the rear. They can most likely recognize persons or vehicles as belonging to or not belonging in the neighborhood.
  • Neighbors can let each other know when they will be away for the day, evening, weekend, or on vacation, and thereby establish a targeted watch during absence. 
  • Neighborhood Watch does not require frequent meetings.
  • It does not ask that anyone take any personal risks to prevent crime.
  • Neighborhood Watch leaves the responsibility for apprehending criminals where it belongs – with your law enforcement agency.


Any responsible citizen can start a Neighborhood Watch within your community by attending this National Sherriff's Association Neighborhood Watch training and ask about convenient times to schedule your initial Neighborhood Watch training in your community.

Citizen Corps asks you to embrace the personal responsibility to be prepared; to get training in first aid and emergency skills; and to volunteer to support local emergency responders, disaster relief, and community safety.
