Congratulations to the Shadow Wood community for receiving 3rd place for the Social Revitalization/Neighborliness Single Neighborhood Category Award by Neighborhoods USA.
Since the community formed the Shadow Wood Neighborhood Watch in 2005, the neighborhood has only had three burglaries, compared to seven before that. The group has been committed to making the community a safer place.
In following the City’s Police Department’s new program, “Make a Call, Make a Difference,” Shadow Wood residents began reporting suspicious activity to police. As a result, officers were able to make more than a few in progress residential burglary arrests.
I am hoping that my outstanding community of Shadow Wood will encourage other Coral Springs residents to have their own neighborhood events and for all residents to get involved by reporting suspicious activity to the police department with the "Make a Call and Make a Difference" program,” Shadow Wood resident Tamara Micensky said. “I am so proud of my neighbors and how they have come through to help each other out with such little effort."
