Clarksburg’s New Neighborhood Watch

The Clarksburg Police Dept. is continuing its effort to revamp its Neighborhood Watch program. Public meetings this week have focused on the renewed attempt.

For far too long Harrison County has been number one for a lot of negative things,” Clarksburg Police Officer Mike Daugherty said. “Number one for prescription drug abuse, number one for bath salts. We want to be number one for good reasons and this Neighborhood Watch is a first step in taking back our city.”

Officer Daugherty says participants are expected to be extra eyes and ears for the police. Daugherty says it also helps bring the communities together.

This is building the community. It’s helping keeping the community safe, but you’re getting to know your neighbors, you’re making more friends and we’re making our areas not only safer but friendlier.

A final informational meeting is set for 7pm Wednesday at the Caperton Center.
