Organized in November 2014, the purpose of the Homeland Park Community Watch is to promote the formation of community watch groups throughout Homeland Park as one large group. In this way we are able to keep each area informed of crime in the area. We also work and assist with other groups in the community. HPCW encourages citizens to assist the police department in combating crime, and to coordinate and cooperate with the police department in establishing rules and guidelines for community watch programs.
Monthly meetings: The meeting for October will be on October 28th at 6PM. Location will be at Homeland Park Primary School. County Council will be presenting the plans for demolition of dilapidated properties and other plans for our area. Hope to see you there!
We have monthly meetings that will be posted to the site and updated regularly. We encourage concerned citizens looking to make a change to attend the meetings. By attending meetings you will get to meet other like minded members of the community, get useful information on how to participate in a community watch program and voice your concerns. Join our Facebook group to get instant notifications. You may contact the admin through the contact section for more info.
