SKYLAND NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH
Skyland Neighborhood Watch
The Skyland General Improvement District has appointed an ad hoc committee for the Skyland Neighborhood Watch Group. The organization of Watch Groups by blocks is the cornerstone of neighborhood crime prevention programs. Ann Grant has volunteered to chair the committee and to oversee the Neighborhood Watch Group. Block captains have volunteered on every street in Skyland to keep watch for any suspicious activity and to report anything to the Douglas County Sheriff. There are Neighborhood Watch signs at each of the three streets meeting at the Skyland entry, and many homes have Neighborhood Watch stickers in their front windows.
The Douglas County sheriff advises that many Lake Tahoe neighborhoods have experienced burglaries or other crimes of opportunity. With greater neighbor-to-neighbor involvement, Skyland homeowners can help eliminate that chance of opportunity. For further information and to become more involved please contact committee chairman Ann Grant, (775) 781-4006. Report suspicious activity to Douglas County dispatch at 775-782-5126, and of course if it’s an emergency situation, dial 911.
