neighborhood watch 300NELSON CREEK, Ky. (1/18/12) - The citizens of Nelson Creek have a message for any possible criminals who come through their community. "We are watching you!"
 
Nelson Creek, a town of just 400, recently held the first meeting of their new neighborhood watch program, with over 80 people in attendance.
 
The new program is spearheaded by Bobby Mayhugh, who told SurfKY News Reporters, "We have formed a neighborhood watch. We had some activity we were not pleased with ... nothing major... but an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Mostly we want our elderly to feel secure. We have a very quiet community six miles outside of Central City, and we're somewhat secluded, with a lot of people retired, so they have time to help watch over things. We're mostly watching for any strange vehicles, anyone walking, we've had some cases of people looking in windows. We've had a great job done by the Sheriff's Department. We have 14 people who have volunteered to drive the roads late at night. This is a close knit community, and everyone is very serious about this."
 
"We had 39 people at our latest meeting." Mayhugh said, adding "We work closely with local police and we can't say enough nice things about Sheriff Curtis McGhee. He has attended both meetings."
 
Watch officers include Bobby Mayhugh, chairman, Tammy Segersis co-chairman, Wendy Mayhugh, secretary and Michael Jackson, communications coordinator.
 
Mayhugh emphasize if you see suspicious activity in the Nelson Creek area, "always call 911 first, then call the number of the neighborhood watch person who lives closest to you."
 
To find out how you can become a part of the Nelson Creek Neighborhood Watch program, contact Mr. Mayhugh at 270-543-5061. The group's next meeting is the second Tuesday of February at 6 p.m. at the Nelson Creek Community Center.
