The Surf City Police Department has received a $500.00 donation from the Surf Condo Homeowners Association. This donation made it possible for us to purchase magnets and business stickers to start up a new Community Policing Program called "SCPD eWatch".
This program will allow us to communicate with homeowners, property owners and business owners by using email. The goal of this program is to utilize email to communicate with residents about issues concerning their neighborhoods or the Town of Surf City. Residents and businesses will benefit from this program by receiving timely emails regarding issues that are a concern to the town. Also, participants involved with this program could be additional eyes and ears for the Police Department. For example, if a resident has someone breaking into vehicles in their neighborhoods the Police Department will send an email to alert nearby residents. Additionally, e-mail notifications can be sent to business if there is a problem with patrons writing bad checks, committing fraud or other crimes that affect businesses. We will add you to our division group email list. Also, anonymous crime tips can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your participation in this program will help us strengthen our relationship with the community, reduce crime, and improve the quality of life for the citizens throughout the Town of Surf City.
