  • Police seeking help to start block watch program

    The Lebanon Police Department would like to start a block watch program in local neighborhoods, but to do that they need the help of local citizens, according to Police Chief Wally Brady.

    In an announcement about the block watch program, Brady wrote that the police patrol neighborhoods, but they are only present for a short period of time. Residents know better than anyone what is happening in their areas.

    Meeting monthly as part of a block watch program will help the police better serve the community, Brady wrote.
