Meeting Set for Stamford/Clarksburg Crime Watch

Print Story | Email Story
STAMFORD, Vt. — A gathering for residents of Stamford and Clarksburg, Mass., who are concerned about recent break-ins has been scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 14, from 1 to 3 at the Stamford Valley Golf Course.

The meeting is being called by a new local crime watch in both towns. Community watch signs will be distributed along with information about the break-ins and how to help protect yours and your neighbor's homes. The watch will also be gathering e-mails as a way to alert residents. Because of the daytime hour of the meeting, organizers suggest leaving one person at home.

In the meantime, watch organizers urge residents to call 911 immediately if you sight someone suspicious in your neighborhood and write down description, plate numbers and states of suspicious vehicles and note the time and date.


The most recent break-in reportedly occurred some time around noon in Clarksburg.

Contact Clarksburg Police at 413-663-7795, Vermont State Police at 802-442-5421 or 911.
