Additionally, NCOs are given the time and flexibility to make strong bonds with the community they serve.” Forming and strengthening that bonds is one of the functions of this Build the Block meeting, at which you can talk about neighborhood safety and make sure your concerns are heard, and your questions are answered.  For the No. 12 meeting, doors open at 5pm for refreshments, and the Meeting starts at 5:30pm.
