Any Suffolk neighborhood concerned about crime would do well to follow the example of the Kingsboro Civic League.

On Sunday, reporter Jason Norman wrote about the Crime Watch program in Kingsboro. Residents routinely patrol the neighborhood looking for anything out of the ordinary and immediately report it to the police.

Over the years Kingsboro Crime Watchers have helped nab shoplifters from the Fresh Pride grocery store, stopped car thieves from stealing cars from a dealership and even aided police on a drug bust.
