A newly created Neighborhood Watch Program will hold its opening meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 11 at 11:30 a.m. at the community center at Battery Park.

The program is being set up in conjunction with the Apalachicola Police Department and the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office. The organizing committee includes resident Jackie Itzkovitz and police officers Ginger Creamer and Pam Lewis.

Itzkovitz is inviting area residents to come by and learn how neighbors can supplement current services.

“Bring your concerns and ideas,” she said. “Learn how to safeguard your possessions, and ways to watch over your neighborhood.”

On the agenda will be the possible development of volunteer night patrols.

For further information, call Itzkovitz at 370-1080.
