TITLE:   Common Ground
Boston Police Neighborhood Watch Unit
DATE:   02/10/2011
DESCRIPTION:   On the second half of the show, host Steve Tompkins talks with BPD Neighborhood Watch director Carolyn MacNeil about their community outreach across the city of Boston by creating neighborhood watch groups. They discuss many issues and reasons surrounding why a group of concerned citizens would create a neighborhood watch group and the role of a Community Service Officer at the neighborhood district police stations. Carolyn talks about new projects that are being created to help solve crimes and make Boston a safer place to live by using newer technology to get and receive information. The BPD is using the same model for neighborhood watch groups to connect the business communities through the City of Boston Main Streets program.
