Community Discusses Reorganizing Neighborhood Watch Program

By Tammy Moore Teague

The Northwest Scott Volunteer Fire Department met on Tuesday evening. Members of the department including Chief Donnie Adkins were present as well as guests Justice of the Peace, Bob Hattabaugh and Scott County Sheriff Randy Shores.

Shores handed out pamplets on organizing a neighborhood watch program. Resident and NWS VFD member, Jerry Cox had been involved with the program in the past. “I’m willing to do what I can to get this restarted.”

Shores is willing to work with the group. “I recommend they take tag numbers of suspicious vehicles and get them to us. We can run them, and although we cannot release the findings to the public, we can find out who these people are. If you see something out of order, give us a call and we’ll check it out.”

Shores also indicated that he would be willing to participate in monthly meetings and that “we’re all for working together.”
