A Letter from the President: 2013 in Review
I was recently given a stack of papers by Tom Phalen who was President of PRCC from 1976 to 1978. Although the papers (from 1974 to the mid 80′s) were from a long time ago, I’m sure there are many among our community for whom that seems like just yesterday. There were many aspects that seemed from a different age but there were other aspects that jumped out from the pages and that helped answer the questions …. What is Pleasant Ridge? And what makes it what it is? Click here to read the rest of the letter.
Here are some ways you can help keep our neighborhood safe!
Pleasant Ridge currently has 40+ streets that are without Block Watches. If you’d like to step up as a captain for your street, please speak up! This is an easy, low commitment way to get involved in the neighborhood, meet some of your neighbors, and help keep PR safe. More information can be found here.
Citizens on Patrol is also seeking volunteers. Citizens on Patrol is a volunteer organization overseen by the Cincinnati Police Department. Volunteers patrol their neighborhoods, acting as the eyes and ears of the police. Patrols concentrate around problem areas aiding police by increasing visibility. COPP units deter crime by their mere presence and visibility to the general public. More information can be found here.
