Councilman Kramer To Organize Block Watch

The Louisville Metro Police Department and Metro Councilman Kevin Kramer are organizing a citizen’s crime prevention program in the Hikes Point area.On Tuesday night, Kramer and LMPD officials will hold a public meeting to ask for volunteers to join a Hikes Point block watch.Kramer says the meeting is a response to complaints about crime and other disruptions in the area.“It was coming from loitering, littering, loud music, those kinds of things. Although, in terms of crime, that doesn’t sound like ‘Oh my gosh this is a huge problem,’ but the loitering was actually literally in the middle of the street," he says.Kramer says block watch programs have been successful in preventing crimes in other neighborhoods.
