Join us for Milwood’s Block Captain/Watch Training – Sat. Nov. 18 at 10:30am

We are working to strengthen our Block Captain & Neighborhood Watch Program! However we can’t do it without YOU!

So we hope you can join us this Saturday, Nov 18 at 10:30am at Milwood Baptist Church, 12217 Cassady Dr, Austin, TX 78727.

We hope it is the first big step to strengthening the program n our neighborhood and stopping crime! But again it will be nothing but a meeting if we can’t get active residents who are interested in making a difference attend! If you can attend please RSVP here so we can have the correct amount of handouts and chairs set-up.

Officer Hebbe will have handouts and a presentation ready for us as well as give us some real direction to help us make changes in our area.

We certainly appreciate your past support and look forward to the future!

Thanks!
