Strict Standards: date_default_timezone_get(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'America/New_York' for 'EDT/-4.0/DST' instead in /homepages/10/d88278606/htdocs/mpd/MPDWiki/includes/Setup.php on line 406

The Montpelier Police Department’s Neighborhood Watch is a crime prevention program, which enlists the active participation of city residents in cooperation with the Montpelier Police Department to reduce crime. Neighborhood Watch is a highly successful effort that has been in existence for more than thirty years across America. It provides a unique infrastructure that brings together local officials, law enforcement and citizens to protect communities. Neighborhood Watch encourages active participation of residents by being willing to look out for, and report suspicious activity. In doing so, residents take a major step towards assisting us in achieving our mission of partnering with the community to provide a safe and secure environment.
