Neighborhood Watch at Pioneer Park
Tehachapi Police Department
August 31, 2019
The Tehachapi Police Department invites the community to join us for a Neighborhood Watch Kickoff Meeting at Pioneer Park on Tuesday, Sept. 10 at 6 p.m.
“Neighborhood Watch belongs to the neighborhoods. We want to help the community in coming together, share some safety tips, explain how a Neighborhood Watch works and help get it started,” said Chief Kent Kroeger.
The Neighborhood Improvement Project began earlier in 2019 as part of our Community Oriented Policing program at the Tehachapi Police Department. It kicked off with officers going door to door asking how the residents felt about their safety and how we could help improve that feeling. We followed that with direct mailers to each house in the neighborhood alerting them to a neighborhood-wide cleanup project. Two neighborhood cleanup days were done, collecting 25 tons of bulky debris. Volunteers from our local churches played a pivotal role in the success of the cleanup efforts.
The Ring Security Camera Subsidy program brought 100 security cameras to residents at a big discount.
Code Enforcement efforts continue trying to get further compliance with income properties and out of the area owners.
“This is about quality of life improvements for our oldest neighborhood in the city,” said Kroeger. “We wanted to show this community we cared and we are willing to roll up our sleeves and help.”
Pioneer Park is located at 105 W. I St. in Tehachapi.
