When the Hilltop is in the news, it’s often about crime. But the south central Hilltop is making a comeback — step by step.
“One thing I think we can really do as a community is keep an eye out for each other and if we see something happening, call police. Call our neighbors. Let everyone know what’s happening rather than let suspicious activity go,” said Justin Boggs, who heads the local block watch with his mother, Lisa.
The block watch has been in place since 1997, and as a result, more people are taking care of their homes and each other.
There is pride for property and people. The Boggs target the area including South Ogden Avenue, Whitehead Road, and Mound Street.
“My neighbors are an extension of my family and my neighbors are my community, and I think we all need to come together and care for each other,” said Lisa Boggs.
The Sells family has lived in their south central Hilltop home for two years. Their kids look forward to National Night Out, what it stands for, and what it has to offer.
National Night Out gives kids and adults a chance to see that life has so much to offer.
