Monday evening, Clarksburg residents got to meet with city council members and local police to talk more about improving neighborhood watch throughout the different sections of the city. 
 
The meeting was at the VA Park and those that attended said the informal air helped to open a thoughtful discussion about how to improve communications between all three different groups.
 
"This was such a positive meeting. We, as a council, learned several things. We need to get the emergency numbers out there so people know what numbers to call, along with the non-emergency numbers, if they want to share information. Neighborhood watch groups are going and they're making a difference," said Clarksburg Councilwoman Margaret Bailey. 
 
Residents said they took away a lot from the meeting as well. 
 
"We are trying to get on the same page with communicating with the police and bringing positive things to our community," said Tracy Karld, the coordinator for the Broadway Neighborhood Watch.  
 
Organizers of the event hope to have more meetings like this in the future.
