Of those 9 wards, about 3 of them have active neighborhood watch programs, 3 have a handful of people meeting monthly and 3 have no program at all.
A citywide St. Albans Neighborhood Watch Advisory Board consisting of city council members, police and neighborhood watch volunteers has been formed to help struggling and startup watch programs succeed.
This citywide board meets the 3rd Friday of each month.
St. Albans citizens who wish to form a neighborhood watch and would like assistance from the citywide board can email JosephHigginbotham@gmail.com or call (304) 550-6710.
Higginbotham At Large reads all submitted comments but only publishes comments from clearly identified submitters. No Ring of Gyges for you.
