MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - New Life Community Church hosted the first community impact meeting Thursday night with Sergeant Keith Moody as Meridian Police Department’s new Neighborhood Watch coordinator.

Citizens concerned with crime in their neighborhoods were invited to attend and speak directly with city law enforcement about things happening in their area.

“What we’re having here tonight is one of the local neighborhood watch meetings. Since taking this over my main goal is to get in here, meet the folks, see other different areas of the city where we have Neighborhood Watches. The ultimate goal is to find out where everything is at and then go from there. And try to pinpoint some other areas that we can start up neighborhood watches. The community, by stepping in and helping us to help them, if they see anything, regardless of what it is, you know give us a call. We’ll get out there and see what’s going on.” said Moody.
