Time to start watching the streets in Agassiz

Businesses need to vigilante in watching for crime, says letter writer

Just saw this week’s Observer (Oct. 5, 2012)

A) Agassiz man arrested in robbery.

B) Daytime break in at Oasis.

C) Time to catch criminals.

It’s a wakeup call for the citizens of Agassiz. It’s time to smell the moose meat. It cannot be left to the police. The citizens of Agassiz have to “come together” and take the bite out of crime and reclaim the streets. We do not want them running round in packs like out of control vigilantes. They need to be educated on how they could take back the streets.

It will take constant alertness, constant willingness to fight back.

they will have to look out for each other. No individualism here. It will take a group effort. We have to decide as a group, do we want to take back the streets? Are we saying, enough already!

Do we want to do something about it?

As we willing to raise our confront on evil? That is going to the hardest part of all, raising one’s confront on evil.

The downtown core does need a neighbourhood watch for businesses, 24/7 if necessary.

Parts of Agassiz already have them, more neighbourhood watches in place. Block captains to take responsibility for their respective street. The City of Chilliwack them — Cops, Citizens on Patrol.

It will require teamwork. The citizens working together, with the downtown businesses, any passing by tourist.
