Easton block watch kicks off new year

The block watch is seeking volunteers to serve as Sector 5 coordinators on College Hill.

About 40 block watch members, plus several police officers and elected officials including Easton District Justice Gay Elwell and Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli attended the meeting.

Police Chief Larry Palmer also reviewed about 15 of the department's major goals for this year, including the installation of mobile data terminals in vehicles and a graffiti removal program.

He said the department is still seeking residents to volunteer as members of the Volunteer In Police Service unit to assist the department with clerical and other duties, such as documenting the locations of graffiti to be removed.

More on block watches and why to participate.
