The Cooper Young Neighborhood Watch is ecstatic to announce that each Zone has been awarded a crime prevention grant from the City of Memphis! We have lots of plans for the grant funds, but our primary goal is to identify willing homeowners who would allow us to install private cameras on the exteriors of their homes to help monitor problematic entry points, alleys, and other areas that have seen higher frequencies of theft. Grant recipients will be officially recognized at an award ceremony scheduled for Friday, April 1, 2016, at 3:00 p.m. at City Hall.
Local news outlets have begun covering the CYNW grants, including this piece from WREG (Channel 3) and this one from WMCTV (Channel 5). For more information on the grants, please join us for the April 6th meeting at Memphis Made Brewery. If you are interested in hosting one of our cameras, please contact us for details on how to proceed!
