Steve McShane is an advocate for Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods. This is one of the many reasons he is running to be the Monterey County Supervisor in District 4 in 2020. He is the force behind providing this website owned and edited by Dave Clark. Steve says “Crime Fighting and Community Building work hand in hand”. Steve commends all the law enforcement agencies in District 4 for providing a service called CrimeReports™, which is a Map showing the public what incidents/crimes are taking place in their neighborhood.
Steve knows it is up to you to put the wheels in motion so he is providing the tools you need to be successful in building a neighborhood watch. No one will do it for you. Find others who see the need to get the word out. Everyone does not think like you so you have to find the common cause to achieve a goal. It will not be easy because you are dealing with egos, personalities, life experiences, diverse backgrounds that are totally different than your own. Be prepared with a good presentation about the who what why when and how to start a Neighborhood Watch to get everyone else to join. Your local police department will have some tools to help.
Steve also said “Having neighborhood pride and improving your neighborhood are two good reasons to start organizing”. Share your ideas, thoughts, feelings and work cooperatively to make your neighborhood a better place to live. Having an organized neighborhood will give you a voice. It will be an advocate to get things done. Neighborhood Watch greatly improves the two-way communication between officials and it’s residents. Your neighborhood will have a clear, organized way to speak with one voice with a guarantee you will be heard. You will have a tool for communicating directly to both your elected officials and public services. This website is a resource that will benefit you and your neighborhood.
Steve’s leadership helped provide the most comprehensive informative website, about public safety and neighborhood watch, to help every community in Monterey County be a safe place to live. He wants neighbors to get to know one another and have close communication with their local law enforcement agency.
