Columbia Heights Police Department

The holiday season is a time for great cheer, but it's also a time of great risk.  Thieves thrive in an environment where people are spending lots of money, and robbery is not uncommon at this time of year.  It pays to be on the vigilant side. 

The Columbia Heights Police Department has a program to help people be safer during the holidays.

Officers Terry Nightingale and Steve Courts talked with KFAI's Siobhan Kierans about the effort, starting with a description of Neighorhood Watch.
