The Muhlenberg County Alliance for Methamphetamine Prevention would like to thank the Leader News for the Nov. 17 article about the Neighborhood Watch Program.

Neighborhood Watch groups started in the United States in the late 1960s. Since that time, they have helped reduce crime in communities throughout the country.

Neighborhood Watch provides a systematic way for community members to work together to protect their homes and families.

Local law enforcement agencies have been instrumental in training prospective Watch Program members. The next time you see a representative of the Central City Police Department, Greenville Police Department, Powderly Police Department, Muhlenberg County Sheriff's Department, or Pennyrile Narcotics Task Force, please thank them for supporting this program and helping make Muhlenberg County a safer place.

As MCAMP works with communities and neighborhoods to begin individual Watch Programs, we want to remind the community that Central City and Powderly already have active Watch Programs. For information about the Central City Program, contact John'fhompsonat977-1812. For information about the Powderly Program, contact Wade Griggs at 338-1225. Several other local areas are starting their own Watch groups. To find out if someone is currently working on a Neighborhood Watch Program in your area or to get information on beginning a Watch Program, please contact me, Paula Brown, at 338-5211.
