Mansfield Police are gearing-up for another year of neighborhood watch group meetings, starting in April.

To form a group, 75% of a neighborhood's residents must agree to become active in it and meet once a month.

Officer Dominga Chatman of the department's Neighborhood Impact Section says residents are taught what to look for in the way of suspicious people of activity, and how to report it. 

She says the most common sign of potential trouble is an unknown person walking up and down the street, and lingering in the neighborhood for no apparent reason.

Officers often find that person has a legitimate reason to be there, but sometimes they find a reason to make an arrest.

She says statistics show, neighborhoods with active watch groups are successful at reducing crime.

Neighborhood watch meetings this year are:

Southeast side (Zone 1)-The second Tuesday of every month at Therm-O-Disc Recreation Park at 6:30 pm.

Southwest side (Zone 2)-The third Wednesday of every month at the Med-Central Patient Education Room at 6:30 pm.

Northwest side (Zone 3)-The fourth Monday of every month at North Lake Park Pavilion at 6:30 pm.

Northeast side (Zone 4)-The first Tuesday of every month at Coolridge Golf Course at 6:00 pm
