Green Bay Neighborhood Watch To Meet Jan. 10

A community in Prince Edward County has formed a new neighborhood watch group called the Green Bay Neighborhood Watch.

Charlotte Steele, who serves as chairman of the watch group, says the initiative to create the group came following numerous reports of home burglaries in the area. She says it is a way the community can get to know and watch out for each other. The group will meet once a month to provide valuable information to the members.

The watch area starts at the intersection of Green Bay Road (696) and Rt. 460 and continues down Green Bay Road to Green Bay on Rt. 360. The watch area covers the Green Bay Road and all roads connected to a point which will be identified at a later date.

Steele is also grateful for the assistance from Prince Edward Sheriff Wesley Reed and the support his deputies have already provided. People in the community working together with our local police department will benefit everyone.

The next meeting of the group is Thursday, Jan. 10, at 7 p.m. at Sharon Baptist Church located at the corner of Sandy River and Green Bay Road. The first meeting was Dec. 6, and over 45 people attended.

“We look forward to seeing all of you again and many more that did not make that first meeting,” Steele said. “Everyone is welcome, if you are out of the area and want to learn how you can start a Watch Group in your area, come to the meeting.”
