Neighborhood Watch Program brochure
If you will click on the above : (Neighborhood Watch Program brochure)
Attached you will find the complete brochure that was handed out to all in attendance at the October 30 Neighborhood Watch meeting. During the meeting Officer Doss offered to share community criminal activity which involves our area. If we were interested we could add our email address’ to the form which was passed around. This is a completely voluntary action. If you are not interested, nothing else needs to be done.
However, if you were not in attendance at the meeting, but would like to be added to Officer Doss’ blast email program you must contact her and request your addition to the list.
As an example of what type of information we will be receiving, last week a email was sent out with reference to a 94 year old St. Peters man who had gone missing. It was a very informative email. FORTUNATELY, a few days later the email was followed up with the wonderful update that the gentleman had been located and was safe back at home.
Feel free to contact Officer Doss and discuss your options if you wish.
Hopefully this attached information will be helpful to you, your family and all of our Drovers Crossing residents who are willing to work TOGETHER to help keep our neighborhood as safe and sound as possible.
Thank you for your time in reviewing the attached brochure.
Thank you very much to those of you who took time out of your busy schedules to attend the Neighborhood Watch Meeting held October 30th.
In attendance were 21 residents. Of the 21 persons, approxiamtely 17 households were represented. Not too bad for our first meeting.
Officer Doss provided quite a lot of very good information, and more importantly, a lot of VERY good advice on how to be more alert and in touch with the everyday goings on of our subdivision.
Please be sure to check back to this web site soon. Within the next few days a posting of the notes and important St. Peters Police/Emergency contact information will be provided.
A neighborhood meeting has been scheduled for Wednesday October 30, 2013 @ 7:00p.m. The meeting will be held at the Spencer Library Multipurpose room. Officer Melissa Doss of the St. Peters Police Department will be chairing the meeting, along with the Board of Trustees. Please spread the word to your neighbors who may not look at this web site. We are hoping to form a Neighborhood Watch Team that same night. Your participation in this meeting will be much appreciated and helpful to the success of the Neighborhood Watch program. Don’t feel that if you are attending the meeting, you will be expected to join the watch team, but please feel free to consider it. We are looking to have a group of 4-6 people who will work closely with Officer Doss and assist to keep our subdivision as secure and aware as we can.
At this time I can report that 2 individuals have been arrested and placed in police custody in relation to the home invasions that recently took place in Drovers Crossing. Charges are still pending. Neither of the men are from our city. One is 17 and from Florissant, the other is 27 and from East St. Louis. Hopefully Officer Doss will be able to share more details and answer any questions we may have about this subject.
Thank you for visiting our web site and we hope you’ll be able to join us on the 30th.
Recently our subdivision has experienced some burglaries and thefts.
Please, for your own protection, lock your doors and car doors. Remove your garage door clickers from your cars and store inside while your cars are parked in the driveways or on the streets. Also make sure to keep your garage doors closed at all times unless you are outside in your front yard.
We will be forming a neighborhood watch team. A neighborhood meeting will be held within the next few weeks, conducted by Officer Melissa Doss of the St. Peters Police Department.
