The Idaho Crime Prevention Association is proudly presenting its third Treasure Valley Neighborhood Watch Summit on Saturday, October 10, 2009 in Boise, ID. This one-day conference, offered to neighborhood leaders, apartment managers, law enforcement personnel, and concerned citizens will provide new skills, information and resources, and inspiration to continue making our neighborhoods safe, livable, and secure.
The summit begins with breakfast and the flag presentation by the City of Boise Police Pipes and Drums. Our keynote speaker is John H. Campbell, of Campbell DeLong Resources. Mr. Campbell will encourage and challenge us with the fact that "having a decent neighborhood is not a right; it's a responsibility. The challenge then, whether you are a neighbor, a landlord, a cop, a code inspector, or any other staff or stakeholder is to re-awaken the sleeping giant that is our communities' true power and best hope for genuine, lasting neighborhood renewal."
Three morning workshops are offered: Emergency Preparedness, Mobilize Your Community, and Impact of Foreclosures in Your Neighborhood.
Lunch will be provided and then Mr. Campbell will speak on Problem-solving Strategies and Organizing Challenges.
Our afternoon workshops will include, Citizen Involvement Tools and Strategies, Neighborhood Watch 101 - Sustainability, and Answers to Your On-Line Questions.
Our Treasure Valley Neighborhood Watch Summits have been well received by our community. Several area law enforcement agencies partnered with area businesses, public agencies, and a neighborhood association to provide this outstanding conference to our citizens.
