MANA's Neighborhood Watch has set up a "NextDoor Medlock Park" network. it's like a private Facebook for neighbors only. The geographic boundaries include streets in both MANA and CHCA since we share common concerns. If you click to join, the program will ask for your real street address to verify that you live within the boundaries. You can edit your profile, however, to show only the street and not the house number. In fact, you can choose to share only your name and street. From MANA: "Our neighborhood is using a private online network called Nextdoor Medlock Park, and we think you'll benefit from joining us. On our Nextdoor site, neighbors share community events, recommendations, items for sale/free, crime/safety concerns, ideas about how to make our neighborhood better, and more. Please join us to build a better neighborhood!

From DeKalb Police Public Education Specialist Al Fowler via Laurel Ridge neighborhood listserv: "COMMUNITY ALERT. Please be aware and alert your neighbors that there are a few scams going around, allowing people to get in your home. The way it seems to be working is that the people are knocking on front doors and talking about tree work or utility line work and that they need to access your back yard or your neighbors. While this is going on and you are taking them to your back yard the other person who is usually waiting in a car in the drive way enters your house and takes whatever they can. BE ALERT…SAY NO to these types of door calls. Don’t open your doors to these people and immediately call 911."

From a local resident near the intersection of N Superior and N Decatur: Hi, I wanted to report that our house, near N Decatur Rd, got broken into again (the last time was late February). I got home right before 6pm today [4/18/13]. They kicked in the carport door and took a jewelry box. It looks like they also tried to take our iMac, but dropped it and smashed it in the process. Like before, the police advised that it was most likely kids en route home from school--based on the time of day and the things they took.
