Neighborhood Watch Alert:

From Lisa P, neighbor:
October 12: Late last night my father’s truck was broken into. They broke into his locked toolbox and stole all his tools. Good tools valued up to $100 worth. Since living in this neighborhood I have never encountered any issue and never thought we would have a robbery especially since we have security nightly. I want to inform the neighborhood so they can just their eyes open and hope that this was just a one time incident.

National Night Out – Tues, Oct 7th

Hey Neighbors! Let’s all get outside and join each other for an evening of fun and hanging out! 

Feel free to go to Milwood Neighborhood Association’s Facebook Page and post details if you are hosting a gathering. Or send details to and we will add it to this post and the facebook event page.

National Night Out is an annual event designed to strengthen our communities by encouraging neighborhoods to engage in stronger relationships with each other and with their local law enforcement partners. The goal is to heighten crime-prevention awareness, build support and participation in local anti-crime programs, and most important, send a message that our neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
