In coordination with The Miriam Hospital Security Department, The Summit Neighborhood Association, The Hope Street Merchants, and The Providence Police Department, residents living in the Hope (Summit) neighborhood of Providence, RI are in the process of forming a “Neighbors of Hope Crime Watch”.
A meeting was held on May 20 to discuss effective strategies for our neighborhood. We had expert participation as Chief of Police Col. Esserman and District Commander Lt. Schiavulli attended (the Lt. was in on a vacation day)! Monica Anderson offerred the attached survey and everyone agreed this would be a great way to begin since a very strong crime watch program involves close neighbors working together. A year or so ago residents of Dexterdale St. independently formed their own crime watch. Ideally, residents of each street would get to know each other better and organize.
This survey outlines the different levels of participation needed for the crime watch, and also serves as a tool to gather information about what concerns residents of the neighborhood have about crime in this area. Surveys can be completed and sent to Monica Anderson, Community Relations at The Miriam Hospital 164 Summit Ave. Providence RI 02906. Surveys can also be dropped off at the main desk of the hospital. Please complete all surveys by August 15, 2008
