Place are eyeing the possibility of rolling out a new form of security to put
more eyes on the streets.

The Burroughs neighborhood
has Signal 88 patrols. Homes there pay $5 per month to cover the cost. The
amount of patrols can go up based on the amount of money raised.
The Block Watch captain in
Point Place says their neighborhoods don't have as much violent crime as other

encouraged to attend the next Block Watch meeting on May 21 to learn more about
Signal 88. The representative will be there to share the costs and benefits.
