Neighborhood Watch - On Tuesday, August 5, 2014, the people of the community of Monte Vista participated in the National Night Out campaign as part of our organized Neighborhood Watch Program. Block captains from all over the community met with their neighbors to discuss matters of concern in their neighborhood and to get acquainted with how neighbors can help each other foster a safe neighborhood. At least six groups gathered in all areas of the city. More than 100 people participated in these group meetings. Many served refreshments and took the opportunity to visit with their neighbors in a friendly and cordial setting. Anyone needing more information on the Neighborhood Watch Program or wanting to organize a Neighborhood Watch program on their block is encouraged to contact Monte Vista Community Policing Officer Wil Pena at 719-852-5111 or WPena@ci.monte-vista.co.us.
