This week was a pretty great week. The first day actually was a big deal for us and our neighborhood. We’ve lived in this neighborhood for 3 years and just this last year we finally got to start meeting some neighbors. We had a house next door to us turn into a forclosure and had been empty for a short while. Then shortly after we had squatters move in and pretty soon we saw random people coming and going and this lasted almost a year. We have lots of kids in our neighborhood and were tired of the drug activity and police not being able to do anything. So we had a neighborhood watch meeting along with a fellow city police officer and with in a few months of all of our neighbors calling the cops daily on in and out going traffic in that house and daily calls to code enforcement and the city we finally got the squatters out and the bank had the house completely cleaned out and gutted. And to celebrate we used the empty house’s driveway and helped host a big block party to celebrate the victory. It was a great day and we got to meet even more neighbors. This was a great week.
