The vigilantism associated with the George Zimmerman case and "stand your ground" laws has led many cities to reexamine the role of neighborhood watch groups in maintaining public safety. In theory, the purpose of the 28,000 citizen watchdog groups in the United States is simply to observe and report — to be an extra set of eyes and ears for the police.

On Friday, March 7 from 7 to 9 p.m. the Clintonville Blockwatch is meeting at the Clinton Heights Lutheran Church, 15 Clinton Heights Avenue for an information session with Lieutenant Gregory Bodker, Supervisor of Burglary and Property Recovery Detectives for the Columbus Police Department.

Lt. Bodker will share information and answer questions about crime prevention and public safety. He will also be inviting the Property Crimes Commander and Precinct 3 CLO to attend.

Neighborhood watch organizer Dana Bagwell requests that anyone with specific questions email them ahead of time to so that Lt. Bodker can be as prepared as possible.
