MEXICO — The Mexico Police Department will hold its monthly neighborhood watch meeting 6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 21, police Chief Roy Hodsdon said Monday.

Hodsdon said that the idea for the program came from reserve police Officer Cam Barrieau, following an increase in the town’s thefts and burglaries.

“He proposed the idea of a neighborhood watch for our town, and I told him I thought it’d be a great idea,” Hodsdon said.

Since the establishment of the neighborhood watch program, members of the watch, along with Mexico Police Department officers, have met on the third Wednesday of each month to discuss ways to make the town safer.

Topics discussed at previous meetings included day burglaries, how to keep your home safe when you’re on vacation and selecting neighborhood watch signs to place around town.
