It was great to see four new officers who are dedicated to protecting our community and keep us all safe! I hope you will join me in welcoming them to San Mateo! The new officers are:
- Officer David Johnson
- Officer Colby Darrah
- Officer Nickolas Morsilli
- Officer Stephen Pettit Jr.
But these officer need our help! If you are not already involved, I urge all neighborhoods to form a Neighborhood Watch group on their block. Besides helping your police department keep you neighborhood safe by being an extra set of eyes and ears on your block, Neighborhood Watch is a great opportunity to socialize and get to know your neighbors better. On the block I live, our Neighborhood Watch meetings always revolve around coffee, ice cream, or a bar-b-que!
To start a Neighborhood Watch program on your block, or to revive a dormant program, please visit the Neighborhood Watch website, or click here. Or you can call Officer John Rink at (650) 522-7744.
