The Sheriff for Talbot County, is very supportive of the Neighborhood Watch Program. Steve Elliott, in the Sheriff’s Office, is developing a data base comprised of the principle contacts for Neighborhood Watch in each of the HOA’s in the County. This will help keep Talbot County Residents better informed.
Block Captains volunteered to become acquainted with an assigned area and contact residents within that area to inform them of the Neighborhood Watch plan for Rio Vista. Our goal is to be “neighbors watching out for neighbors”.
Working with the Talbot County Sheriff’s department, a training class was held for the volunteers. Afterward they fanned out into Rio Vista to share that training with the neighbors in their assigned areas.
Basically, everyone is encouraged to notice what is going on in the neighborhood and to alert the Sheriff’s Department of any suspicious activity:
All calls to (410) 822-1020 are treated as anonymous if the caller indicates that preference.
Residents are directed not to take any action other than making the phone call to law enforcement and to place warning calls to neighbors if necessary.
If you have questions, please contact Sandi Droege at (410) 745-6572
