Speaking of State Police in Bradford ...... Here is a practical question concerning the State Police.
I was wondering ...... can a town or city have a neighborhood watch in conjunction with the State Police?
When I drive through small towns (like Wilcox), some have "neighborhood watch" signs and they don't have a town or local police force ..... so I figger they must have an arrangement with the State Police? Or how does that work?
You don't need to have to police involved at all until later in the "game". You simply organize a group of citizens, have meetings once in a while to discuss things, and you keep an eye on things. If you see something illegal or suspicious, then you call the police. The only reason police have become more involved lately is to push organizing against crime and taking back neighborhoods.
Being involved in a neighborhood watch is neither supervised nor dependent upon any police officer. It just takes some concern and initiative.
