With the support of his Neighborhood Advisory Council, other community groups, the
City Council, and the Revere Police Department, Mayor Rizzo has launched an
aggressive campaign to expand Crime Watch groups across the City. The goal of
the program is to energize Crime Watch and create small groups of interested
citizens who want to join in each Ward.
a meeting was held at the Whelan School for residents of Ward 6. Over 100
community members attended the meeting where they learned best practices for
Crime Watch formation. Because of that meeting, small crime watch groups have
begun to emerge in the area. Representatives from Home Deport were present at
the meeting displaying different safety/locking devices available to the public
that would help with home security.
next Community Crime Watch meeting will be held at the American Legion Building
on Tuesday March 26th at 6:00PM. The meeting is mainly for
residents of Ward 4 however, everyone is welcomed to attend. Members from the
aforementioned organization will be there to talk about keeping you and your
family safe, as well as reviewing the goals and strategies for crime watch
formation. It will conclude with a Question and Answer period to include
residents of our community..
am really pleased with the outreach efforts being made by the Police Department.
The main concern that I hear on a daily basis is that people want to know how to
make their neighborhoods safer. I believe that these Crime Watch meetings, in
each and every Ward of the City, will help to increase neighborhood security and
cohesion,” stated Mayor Rizzo.

can make Revere a safer and stronger community.
