Heather Nye, an Outreach Intern from the National Home Security Alliance, asked me if i would post this article on Starting and growing a Neighborhood Watch. My 30 years as a police officer I always loved working with the community.

Fire Nobody! by Dave Smith

As cops, we often cry loudly about the lack of training in our profession. I am guilty of it myself.


Being a leader takes action and self-motivation. A leader isn’t born over night and it may take someone months, years, or a life time to find what type of leader they should be. For those of us who have the motivation and drive to be a leader or those who want to be a leader, we must find what works for us.
