October is Crime Prevention Month in the Village of Wellington. This year’s Neighborhood Watch village-wide meeting will be held Tuesday, Oct. 3 at 6 p.m. at the Wellington Community Center (12150 W. Forest Hill Blvd.). This event is free to attend.
During the meeting, attendees will hear from representatives of the Palm Beach County Consumer Affairs Office on scam prevention, especially within the elder community, as well as a presentation on ID theft within the technology context by representatives from the Palm Beach County Library System.
Wellington’s neighborhood watch program, in partnership with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, serves a variety of functions within the community. Participation in this program provides residents with tools that support the safety of the community.
