Neighborhood Watch Task Force? Support Group?

In yesterday's post about the most controversial aspect of Neighborhood Watch I mentioned the discouragement, the burnout and the loneliness of Neighborhood Watch leaders and then I moved to do something about it in my own little town. I sent letters to the chief of police and to several of our town's Neighborhood Watch leaders. I proposed that we start meeting together on a regular basis to do the following:
1.Encourage each other.
2. Discuss best practices
3. Define and measure Neighborhood Watch progress and success because what gets measured gets done.

We could call this meeting the St. Albans Neighborhood Watch Task Force or we could call it a Neighborhood Watch support group. I don't care what we call it as long as we do it.
