BCA Educational Presentations
The BCA is continuing our series of educational presentations. The first of 2017 is "Lady Beware - Personal Safety" on January 9th.
If you have a topic you would like us to explore or know of a speaker/presenter looking for a forum to present, please let us know!
Blackridge Neighborhood Watch
One of the perks of living in a community that keeps in touch is that we look out for each other. We live in a fairly safe neighborhood, but crime does occasionally happen. Some big deterrents for crime are keeping alert, notifying police of anything suspicious, and keeping others informed. To be kept informed of activity in the neighborhood or to report crime news, please email: email@example.com.
