A Quarter Century of Neighborhood Watch

Camelot Neighborhood Watch in the Annandale community of Camelot will celebrate 25 years of volunteer service to that community. The Camelot Neighborhood Watch will be honored by the Citizens’ Advisory Council of the Mason District Police Station, Mason District Supervisor Penny Gross and Fairfax County Executive Anthony H. Griffin, along with other Neighborhood Watch programs, on Tuesday, April 13, at the Mason District Governmental Center, 6507 Columbia Pike, Annandale, beginning at 7:30 p.m.

The Camelot Neighborhood Watch has been recognized by the White House, the Congress of the United States and the Virginia General Assembly and has attracted the attention of local and national media. In existence for 25 years, the Camelot Neighborhood Watch is the oldest continuously active neighborhood crime prevention organization in the United States and serves as a model for other similar organizations throughout the nation.

“The Camelot Neighborhood Watch sets the standard for community neighborhood watches,” said Mason District Supervisor Penny Gross. “I am proud that Mason District has more neighborhood watches than any other area of Fairfax County.”

Initiated 30 years ago, the Neighborhood Watch Program involves local officials, law enforcement and citizens as they strive to create a safe environment in each community through vigilance.

For more information, call Officer Al Kivi or Officer Chip Connor of the Mason District Police Station at 703-256-8035, TTY 711.
