[ARCHIVED] Organizational meeting for Ward 1 Neighborhood Watch happening Thursday, March 30

Homes on E. Robinson St

Residents in Jackson's First Ward have an upcoming opportunity to learn about how they can join forces to keep the area safe and support neighbors. An organizational meeting for the Ward 1 Neighborhood Watch Association is happening Thursday, March 30, 6:00 p.m. at the MLK Recreation Center. 

Neighborhood groups, residents and First Ward City Councilmember Arlene Robinson are getting together with Jackson Police Department Group Violence Intervention (GVI) Coordinator Cheryl Ragland to launch this new neighborhood group.  Ragland says she expects the Ward 1 group to be focused on more than just watching for crime. “There will be an emphasis on neighborhood safety, but the Ward 1 group also wants this to be a community collaboration where neighbors come together to share resources and uplift the area,” Ragland said. 

Ward 1 includes neighborhoods on the south side of Jackson. The MLK Recreation Center is located at 1107 Adrian St. For more information in forming a neighborhood watch program in your ward, please  contact GVI Coordinator Cheryl Ragland at 517-768-8728.
