A little bit about us ...

As noted, the "Citizen Patrol" segment of our community action includes both 'walking' and 'driving' patrols. The "driving" patrol is provided by volunteers who sign up each month - though that in no way limits their participation.  A Patrol Binder travels from one patrol rep to the next and includes all contact information, patrol report forms, house check reports, and other pertinent information.   The "Citizen Patrols" are very random, frequently done more than once a day and by varied members of the group.  As should make sense, there is no 'pattern' to the patrols.  Not all "neighborhood watch" participants are also members of the Citizen Patrol. 
       "Citizen Patrol" - "walkers" - are primarly folks who live in town and prefer to spend their time within the city limits and closer to home.  With vehicular patrols, folks will often times see the Citizen Patrol magnetic signs ... but that isn't always true as we want to provide a 'lack of structure' so as not to provide any form of observed "schedule" to any potential criminal environment ...
 
"In-town" as well as far outreaching 'partnerships' help with the communication -- from 'town toward Hwy 213, from 'town' up Crooked Finger Road to Camp Dakota and beyond; and up Heinz, Grandview and other 'outlying' county roads.  Some patrols also travel roads in Clackamas County - up Maple Grove Road, Butte Creek Road and frequently check the cemetery.  Several very active members of the NHW and the CP program are residents of the 'county' and not from within the city limits!
 

SMNW meets the first Tuesday of each month at Scotts Mills Community Center (corner of 4th and Grandview) - beginning at 7PM.  Building on "Neighborhood,"  

ALL Meetings are Open To The Public.

"Even Numbered Months," the meetings include a potluck that begins at 6:30 p.m. 

ANNUAL COMMUNITY EVENT:
     The August event is held the First Tuesday in partnership with "America's Night Out Against Crime!" ... and begins at 5:30 . Though the format changes, the emphasis is always as the same:  Building community among local and area residents!  Check back on the side for additional specifics as the location may vary.  Events have been held at the County Park, the City Park, and in partnership with Scotts Mills School.  This is a "Pure Potluck" event.  Though we usually have an abundance of food, the request is for families to bring a main course and a salad or desert that would serve their family and share it - along with a lawnchair or blanket to sit on, and enthusiasm toward meeting new and visiting with known neighbors!

COME ON OUT AND VISIT WITH AREA NEIGHBORS - NEW AND "OLD" !  GET TO KNOW FOLKS SO YOU CAN HAVE A BETTER HANDLE ON COMMUNITY AWARENESS!

MISSION STATEMENT: 

"A partnership of area residents, business owners, and law enforcement working together to create a better quality of life for the community of Scotts Mills and its neighbors."
