MANY, La – Neighborhood watch signs have now been installed in neighborhoods throughout the Town of Many.
The signs are a joint effort between the Many Police Department and the Sheriff’s Department to keep the people and homes in Many safer.
The signs are notifications that people are watching their neighborhoods and will immediately report any suspicious activities to the police.
Acts of vandalism, theft, car break-ins, and other illegal activities have prompted the police to ask citizens to be pro-active in their neighborhoods by notifying police if they see anything suspicious.
Cheryl Wooley, Many’s Chief of Police, said, “We want our people to feel safe in their neighborhoods and to help us fight crime by reporting suspicious activities whenever they see something wrong occurring. Our police actively patrol throughout Many, but it’s impossible for them to be everywhere all the time. That’s why we are posting the neighborhood watch signs and asking our citizens to call us when they see something that is wrong.”
If it’s a crime in progress, people should immediately call 911. Otherwise they should call the Many Police Department at 318-256-5617. To report a suspected crime, they should then press 5. Quick action by responsible citizens is expected to help in lowering crime in the Many neighborhoods.
Sheriff’s Department officials David Remedies and Stanley Neal assisted in locating and installing the signs. Kody Firesheets from the Many Police Department also assisted with the installation of the signs throughout the Many neighborhoods. Dominique Green, community activist, assisted in determining locations for the signs. The Detention Center also provided assistance.
