Selma Old Town CSC 2009

Crime Prevention:  It’s a Neighborhood Thing!


The Old Town Neighborhood Watch will participate in the Celebrate Safe Communities initiative on Tuesday, October 20, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in Selma, AL. Plans are to block off Abbott Street between Church and Tremont for the celebration. The afternoon will start with a Decorated Bike and Stroller Parade led by the SPD Bike Patrol.  Residents will visit with the various emergency personnel, learning about safety and receiving small gifts. Neighbors will enjoy greeting people they know and meeting those they do not. Adults and children both will view numerous emergency vehicles up close and personal. Folks will talk with officers and firefighters throughout the afternoon. Delicious hot dogs, pulled pork barbeque sandwiches, sno-cones, popcorn, and Pepsi will be provided free of charge.

Registration will be a busy place at Selma Old Town’s CSC.  Not only will we use this as an opportunity to update our NW records, but we will also collect nonperishable items for donation to the Christian Outreach Alliance’s Food Pantry.  An old-fashioned cakewalk, hoop shoot, dance contest, guitar hero/rock band competition, and karaoke will keep everyone entertained. This CSC event will help to highlight the need for all citizens of Selma to be aware of the importance of crime prevention programs and the impact that their participation can have on reducing crime, drugs and violence in Selma.  It’s a neighborhood thing!
