05/07/20 COVID-19 SHUTDOWN

Due to the COVID-19 shutdown, the Parkersburg City Building is closed until further notice. The May Co-op meeting is canceled. We are hoping things will be back to somewhat normal for our scheduled July meeting. Bookmark and watch this page for further information.

02/13/20 Watch Captains Please Note

In order to keep a better record of which neighborhoods have active watch groups, we are implementing an annual Charter Renewal policy. Watch Groups that do not submit the needed documentation for the annual Charter renewal will be moved to inactive status. Please review the new policy and procedure here.

Upcoming Events (Be sure to also check the calendar)

The regularly-scheduled Co-op meeting is at 6:00 pm on the second Thursday of every other month, usually in the Parkersburg City Building, 1 Government Square [MAP], but the location changes from time to time. Check the schedule here.

Beware of the Imitation

There is an individual in Parkersburg who wants to start his own competing version of Neighborhood Watch and charge a “user fee” for each Watch Group. He has not been authorized by either the city or the county to do so. If you are approached by any individual who tells that you are not permitted to walk patrol in your neighborhood without paying his fee, do not argue with him in any way. Simply continue on your patrol and file an Incident Report with your Watch Captain, who will forward it to the Co-op President for reporting to the police department.

Please Consider Supporting After The Disaster

After The Disaster, Inc. (ATD) is a Parkersburg-based non-stock, non-profit, all-volunteer public benefit corporation that provides Lovin’ Hands Kits (see the page) for victims of disasters such as fire or flood. With no salaries, rent, utilities, or other expenses to pay, over 99% of all donations go directly into ATD’s relief efforts for the community (there are a few minor operating expenses, like advertising and printing). ATD provides the kits to fire stations to be carried on their trucks and distributed at the scene to the affected victims. All the fire departments in Wood County currently participate in this relief program. ATD’s specific objectives are:

  • To assemble hygiene kits for fire/flood victims;
  • To provide first responders with hygiene kits to be distributed on scene; and
  • To maintain a supply of hygiene kits for first responders to distribute.
