The re­si­dents held an in­for­ma­ti­on ses­si­on for the se­cond ti­me on Thurs­day. They want to con­vin­ce eve­ry­bo­dy to sup­port the neigh­bor­hood watch. Ray­mond ma­de it clear that it is im­por­tant for the re­si­dents to ha­ve a neigh­bor­hood watch espe­ci­al­ly gi­ven the num­ber of cri­mes that ha­ve oc­cur­red in the area. He re­fer­red to the in­ci­dent at Okro­dam whe­re a rob­ber was gun­ned down by a re­si­dent. He al­so poin­ted out that gas cy­lin­ders are of­ten sto­len and that stran­gers are of­ten spot­ted in the area. Soekhan ex­plai­ned that ha­ving a neigh­bor­hood watch will ha­ve a pre­ven­ta­ti­ve ef­fect espe­ci­al­ly when the­re are pe­o­p­le pa­trol­ling the streets. He al­so ex­plai­ned that the im­por­tant things is for eve­ry­bo­dy to feel sa­fe in their own neigh­bor­hood. The neigh­bor­hood will re­por­ted­ly work with the lo­cal po­li­ce de­part­ment.
