BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- It's National Celebrate Safe Communities Month, and Bowling Green neighborhoods are participating.
This afternoon the people of the Roselawn Neighborhood gathered to celebrate the progress it's made.
Over the years, they have put in new mailboxes, house numbers and stop signs.
They've done it through SNAP grants -- Select Neighborhood Action Program grants -- that the city gives to neighborhoods with a watch program so they can improve their communities.
"In the past, where we were actually more outreaching beforehand, we would actually go to Dutch Gardens and other streets and try to get them to have neighborhood watches. So today's just celebrating those past partnerships, as well as working with our police and fire and making our neighborhood safer," said Dustin Owens, who is on the Roselawn Neighborhood Watch Association.
There will be 10 more events this month similar to the one today.
This month is about promoting crime prevention in local communities.
