CLEVELAND - 25 cities, 25 days. Our Building Better Neighborhoods: Keeping You Safe Where You Live takes us to five more cities the week of April 7 to 11.
MONDAY | Cleveland Heights — Leon Bibb
TUESDAY | Montville Township — Tracy Carloss
WEDNESDAY | Oberlin — Lee Jordan
THURSDAY | Copley — Chris Flanagan
FRIDAY | Wickliffe — Danita Harris
Leon Bibb visits Cleveland Heights on Monday, Tracy Carloss goes to Montville Township in Medina County on Tuesday, Lee Jordan will be in Oberlin on Wednesday, Chris Flanagan tours Copley on Thursday and Danita Harris is in Wickliffe on Friday.
Each of these communities has agreed to identify five streets or neighborhoods and hold a safety meeting or start block watch neighborhoods. At this meeting, residents will be urged to connect with their city officials, safety forces and with each other.
To help with that process, NewsChannel5 teamed up with the free social network app Nextdoor. The goal of Nextdoor is to bring back that sense of community by utilizing the technology we use today. The app can be used to organize events, report suspicious activity or ask for help or recommendations.
Our project also has the endorsement of the Ohio Attorney General's office whose mission is to protect Ohio consumers. Attorney General Mike DeWine said, "Police really depend on you and me to do our part, and part of that is looking out for each other."
If you live in one of the cities we are visiting this week, stop by and say hello.
