Why Nobody at Oakhaven Cares about the Crime Watch

Building captains don't show up at the Oakhaven Crime Watch meetings. Residents don't show up at the Oakhaven Crime Watch meetings. Few people show up even when we hand out free food and bring in interesting speakers. Why are our Oakhaven Crime Watch meetings so sparsely attended?Buy at

We asked the experts. The answer is simple, and there's one main reason for the poor attendance at Oakhaven Crime Watch meetings. That is because our Oakhaven Crime Watch works, and there is very little crime here! If we had a number of cars or apartments broken into, we would have spectacular attendance at Oakhaven Crime Watch events. Naturally, we do not want a crime spree here, so this is why the Oakhaven Crime Watch is particularly important when it works well. As people drop out, we need more participation to fill empty positions when people move. And we always need more eyes and ears.

We don't want to have to all carry around pepper spray every time we take out the trash or get something from the car!

So just because the Oakhaven Crime Watch works, don't think we don't need every one of the Oakhaven residents. It's because of everyone's participation that Oakhaven is one of the safest places in Carrollton, already the safest city in Texas. Instead of complacency, we need cooperation! Make sure your building captain has your name, phone number, and email, at a minimum. If you don't have a building captain, how about becoming one?

In short, don't wait until it is too late to become involved in the Oakhaven Crime Watch. We want boring meetings, because we want the Oakhaven Crime Watch to work!
