Mission Viejo neighbors – we have been testing out a new neighborhood watch program. One that uses updated technology and resources to improve its effectiveness, such as a shared radio channel, 24/7 real-time chat through Discord/Slack (app) and information sharing, graffiti removal, homeless tent/camping removal, media sharing of doorbell and house footage, etc. as well as some of the more traditional watch methods.
What we have found in the recent weeks is that there is absolutely a need for it, so we would like to open this citizen action group to the neighborhood, and see if we can find others looking to coordinate in any capacity to help keep the community safer.
The group is non-political, and not directly part of the HOA, though some group efforts will be coordinated through the HOA website. If you would like to learn more about this new effort, please join us at the Mission Viejo Library on March 4th before the HOA meeting for a 20-minute presentation with 10 minutes for questions.
