"There's a lot of potential in this community and I just want to see more unity. More people standing together to fight the gang problem, the crime over all, the crime in general, to educate people. That's what I think our ultimate goal is to just unify the community," said Officer Joe Chiprez, who is the Sunnyside PD's Block Watch spokesperson.
Sunnyside's first official block watch meeting takes place next Tuesday in the Sunnyside Municipal courtroom at 6:30 PM.
