Boulder Hill Neighborhood Watch Proposed

A tentative date is in the works for an informational meeting.

The Kendall County Sheriff’s office announced that Boulder Hill may be getting a Neighborhood Watch program.

Sheriff's Deputy Brian Harl said community policing deputies spoke with Boulder Hill residents about initiating a neighborhood watch program and said, “they seemed very interested and recognized the need.”

A tentative date will be set for an informational meeting, to take place at the Oswegoland Park District Civic Center, to provide information on how to start and maintain a neighborhood watch in the community.

Those interested in being an active participant of the watch can contact Deputy Schmitt for more information at (630) 553-7500 extension 6686 or through email at zschmitt@co.kendall.il.us.

Harl said the Sheriff’s department has recently established a “solid” neighborhood watch program in Newark.

Great idea....Glad to hear people stepping up and wanting to take charge and pride in their area. The police are great at what they do, but they can't be and see everything. The more help they get, the better the area will be. Of course proper training for these people are much needed, but I see this as a win win situtation. Just hope we don't hit the news with another Treyvon Martin situation.

Mike E would be a great candidate for this. Since he thinks most of the youth in Boulder hill are a band of misfits and ruffians anyway. This way he can keep them off his lawn too.

And maybe he can be joined by his friend Fed Up who think that shoveling his sidewalk is handing them something on a silver platter.

Tell you what Richard and G'sMom. Give me your address and I'll come and vandalize your property just like the kids do to our properties. Be sure to have your kids in the front yard so that they can listen to what I have to say. I won't use any words other than what the little sailors do in front of our house. Let me know how that works out for you.
