Military Park Neighborhood Association residents discussed home security Nov. 30 at its first meeting since reforming. Residents of the Dearborn Heights association were told that basic things such as turning on porch lights help deter crime and cost about 10 cents for eight hours. Also, while not every household can afford a monitored security alarm, there are options, including devices that can “see” the inside of homes via cell phones. Dearborn Heights police representatives urged residents “If you see something, say something,” and to report crimes because police can determine patterns of criminals and may be able to solve other crimes. The group also discussed new city regulations about new trash collection containers. The group meets at Our Lady of Grace Church Hall, 8679 Riverview St. Its next meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 18. The MPNA boundaries are Joy Road, Hazelton, Ann Arbor Trail and Telegraph.
