Outside the zooming of cars, Cadenhead considers her neighborhood quiet. “In Forest Hills, it’s still very aesthetically pleasing. I like that about it,” added Cadenhead. But, she’s seen an uptick in crime. “So we are doing what we can to get to know one another. When neighbors get to know one another, we communicate more about what’s going on in the neighborhoods,” added Cadenhead. Cadenhead, and three other neighborhood watch presidents, put Group Me in the hands of homeowners concerned about crime. “They actually track it from block to block and say it’s over here now or I just saw it there […]
