On Friday morning, April 18th, residents living on a rural road in Fairview Township, York County, PA discovered flyers on their driveway representing a national organization. The flyers indicated that there was a “neighborhood watch” and that residents should call a 24-hour national number if there are troubles in their neighborhood.
The Fairview Township Police Department would like to make it clear that it has not partnered with and has not been contacted by an organization wanting to start a neighborhood watch group. If there is a police emergency or if residents have a public safety concern they should call the Fairview Township Police Department, not the number listed on the flyer.
Fairview Township would like to reiterate and emphasize that it will not tolerate hate crimes of any sort. The Police Department will arrest anyone who commits a crime against a person or group because of their race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, mental or physical disability, sexual orientation, or gender. Fairview Township will continue to stand up for the rights of all persons.
