Chuck: It's not as simple as having a stack in the trunk of your car and
just bolting them to a pole. Email me separately and I'll take care of
directing you to the correct person. Mike W.

Fellow INCers ...
My neighborhood association (Long Meadow) has been trying to get
Neighborhood Watch signs posted for over 10 months. Apparently there
is some sort of logjam in getting the signs ordered and delivered. I
think it is unfortunate that my neighborhood (and others since many
are waiting on these signs) has worked so hard to form an association
and get block captains in place only to not have any clear
notification to those moving about the neighborhood that it is being
I'm well aware that in Durham the squeaky wheel gets the grease. So
I'm appealing to you for guidance on to whom you think we should be
squeaking to get our Neighborhood Watch signs!
If we truly believe that neighborhood watches make a difference and
that the City is willing to do its part to support us in this, I
would expect there to be a warehouse of signs just waiting to be
given out. I would expect Crime Prevention officers to have a pallet
load in the trunks of their patrol cars driving around squeezing
neighborhoods to organize so they can stake out the watch area.
Instead, the sign maker seems to get the wording wrong over and over
and so there just are no signs to be had.
President, Long Meadow Neighborhood Association
