When Marilyn Hyland's back door in Clifton was kicked in and her house robbed, she got angry. She contacted Cincinnati Police District 5 and asked to set up a Block Watch meeting.

The meeting included two adjacent streets, so neighbors could become known to each other. The response from the community at large was such that people from other streets attended and asked to meet monthly.

Organizers are now identifying a captain for every block in Clifton.

The next meeting is at 6:45 p.m. April 5 at Clifton United Methodist Church.

Hyland wants to see a block watch and party on each block in Clifton this summer.
