Garfield Ridge Neighborhood Watch Patrols Prevent Crime, Fight Blight

The Southwest Chicago Post was invited to ride along with the leaders of the Garfield Ridge Neighborhood Watch on Monday, May 7.

We were with them briefly, on the first few stops of their night patrol, as they checked out local schools and parks, took direct action to eradicate graffiti at a busy intersection, and fought blight by attempting to make contact with and offer assistance to an elderly homeowner in need of help with a dilapidated fence, garage and home exterior.

Al Cacciottolo interviewed.
 Highlights of our ride-along are posted on the Southwest Chicago Post's YouTube channel.
