Crime Prevention Training for Community

Tenleytown residents and neighbors are fortunate to live in a relatively safe community. However, as any neighborhood in an urban environment, we are sometimes targets for crime – as anyone who has had their car rifled through recently will be quick to point out.

On Tuesday, March 11 Samantha Nolan, a citywide neighborhood watch trainer and at-large member of the Citizens Advisory Council, will offer a crime prevention training. Attendees will learn steps they can take to reduce crime in their community, improve their safety at home and avoid becoming a victim.

The training, which begins at 7:00 p.m., will take place at St. Columba’s Episcopal Church located at 4201 Albemarle Street, NW. Space is limited, and previous session have been well attended. Reserve your space for the free training by emailing Ms. Nolan at

As Benjamin Franklin said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

  • How about getting the citizens of this fine neighborhood to clear their walks when it snows. The residents on Ablemarle between 38th St. and Nebraska are notorious for not shoveling their walks. It is a disgrace. And these people – who could clearly hire someone to shovel their walks for them – should be fined.
