Quincy Police and local residents met at Riverview Park tonight to organize a Neighborhood Watch Program.
Dozens of people gathered as officers explained the difficulty of covering such a broad area with limited resources. That's why they need to have an extra set of eyes. One organizer says she called the meeting because she doesn't think her neighborhood is safe.
"We have had a lot of thefts. A lot of vandalism a lot of drugs and things that have been going on in the area, and I think my main goal is just to make it a safer place," said Cheryl Hobson, who helped organize the meeting.
Hobson already said there's been a decrease in crime just with posters up telling people about the Neighborhood Watch meeting.
