Subject: A Cozy Home

Hello NAME,

Your home should be a place you, your friends and family can comfortably enjoy. You want your home to be a place that is inviting and relaxing where even the most unexpected guests will feel at home.

Making your home  more cozy doesn’t have to be hard and can be done with a few changes to your décor.

Throws and Pillows- Adding soft throw blankets and pillows to your couch and chairs will instantly soften up the room. Don’t be afraid to mix textures to make it even more inviting.

Mix and Match- It’s okay to mix and match different styles just keep a common color throughout that will help tie the pieces together.

Add a Little Vintage- Shop your local thrift stores and vintage markets to find some accessories that will add a sense of charm and history to your home. Reclaimed wood, whether in a piece of art or furniture, is another vintage element that can add some warmth to your home.

Layer Your Window Treatments- Layering drapes over your window shades will instantly soften the room.

Display Family Photos- Feel more at home by displaying photos of those you share it with and who are closest to your heart.

Play With Paint Color- Adding a warmer color of paint to a built-in or other architectural element in your home can add a sense of warmth.

Your home should be a place that reflects your family’s personality and style. Choose elements that you love. Collect items over time that have meaning, and select furniture that is comfortable yet sophisticated.

Warmly,
XXXXXXXX

Subject: How to Start Your Own Neighborhood Watch

Hello NAME,

Working together with your neighbors builds a sense of community and helps reduce crime. If your neighborhood does not yet have a neighborhood watch group here are some simple tips to help you get started.

Start the conversation. Begin by talking with your neighbors about putting together a neighborhood watch. Find out who is interested and recruit them.

Contact your local Sheriff’s Department and Schedule a Meeting. It is a great idea to have the Sheriff’s department attend and present at your first meeting. If they are unable to make it make sure you stay in close communication with them. It is important to collaborate with your local Sheriff’s Department.

Invite your neighbors to the meeting. Set a meeting date and time that works best for most. Try to avoid weekends. Usually weekday evenings are best. Put together an invitation and deliver to neighbors two weeks before the meeting. Recruit a few volunteers to help you distribute the invitations to the neighborhood.

Host your first meeting and create a plan. At your first meeting you will want to discuss the main concerns of the neighborhood and how to address those concerns. This would be a good time to also establish who will be the leaders of the group, the block captains, the law enforcement liaison, and who will handle communications for the group.

Create a communication plan. As a group you will need to decide the best methods for communication such as text, email, a Facebook group or page, and meetings.

Next, register your group. You can go to https://nnw.org/user to create an account for your watch group. If you have questions you can email nw@sheriffs.org.

Host meetings and events. There are a lot of great resources for your meetings and events that can be found athttps://www.nnw.org/toolkit. You will want to put together meetings and events that help address the concerns of the neighborhood that were laid out in the plan from the first meeting. Here are a few examples of the types of presentations and events you can host: Back to School Safety, Holiday Safety, Crime Prevention, First Aid Training.
