Hello and welcome to our first edition of “The Vallejo Lamplighter.” This online newsletter will be sent out quarterly with articles about Neighborhood Watch programs, safety tips, important dates to remember and information other Neighborhood Watch groups want to share.

This newsletter is your newsletter. I would encourage you to appoint someone in your neighborhood watch group to submit articles about your area and what you folks are doing to prevent crime. It doesn’t have to be a lengthy report, just something that is working to keep your group active.

It’s the goal of Fighting Back Partnership to keep our Neighborhood Watch Program alive and well for our community. To date we have over 200 groups throughout Vallejo. That’s a far cry from where we started in 2009 with only 10.

We all know that without each other’s help and support, we would not feel safe in our homes. It is the dedication of empowered residents like you that keeps our homes and families safe and reduces the chances of becoming victims of crime. We still have a way to go, but we will take our city back from those that think they can have their way with us.

I’m also happy to report that because of the generosity of residents and businesses, we have raised over $10,000 to keep the program alive! Our goal is to raise $50,000 for one year of funding. We will be doing fundraisers in the near future, so keep your calendars open for us!

Lastly, I want to thank the dedication of the volunteer committee that put “The Lamplighter” together. They have worked long and hard to produce a quality product that is meaningful and informative. Those include Marian Swanson, John Allen, Lony Meyer, Kevin Dixon, Marilyn Golding, David Corbett, Suzanne Harrington-Cole, Ann Smith, Sylvanus Burton,  Mark Stein, Nancy Walton and Avonelle Hanley-Mills.
