Aberdeen Police Department Deputy Chief Carl Colasacco spent his Tuesday morning placing new Community Watch signs along roads in the Berkeley Community.
Deputy Chief Colasacco is in charge of Community Relations and Investigations with the department and he stated that these new signs were part of a coordinated effort between community members and the police department.
The residents in the area along with the police department wanted to post Community Watch signs to clearly let would be trouble makers know that this is one community that stands together and if a person sees someone committing a crime against his or her neighbor they will be calling law enforcement.
In addition to the Community Watch signs, selected places also included No Parking signs in response to complaints from residents about people parking in areas that they should not be and creating traffic problems.
Community Watch signs such as these are posted across different communities in Aberdeen as part of the police departments ongoing efforts to work directly with local residents to hopefully prevent crimes from happening and to help solve them when they do occur.
