Bath Police Department Launches Virtual Neighborhood Watch
In an effort to facilitate a virtual neighborhood watch program, the Bath Police Department partnered with Nextdoor (www.nextdoor.com), the private social network for neighborhoods.
Nextdoor is free for residents of Bath Township. Four virtual neighborhoods have been created to mirror the Bath Police Department patrol areas. Each neighborhood is accessible to only residents of that neighborhood. Residents can use the website to get to know their neighbors, as questions, and exchange local advice and recommendations. For example, neighbors use Nextdoor to share information about neighborhood crime and safety issues, local events, school activities, upcoming garage sales, lost pets, and much more.
Information shared on Nextdoor is only visible to verified members. The Bath Police Department will be able to post important information, such as crime updates to neighbors. The police department will not be able to access the resident’s websites, contact information, or content.
Nextdoor was specifically designed to make neighbors feel comfortable sharing information with one another in order to build stronger communities. All members must verify that they live within the neighborhood. Information shared on Nextdoor is password protected and cannot be accessed by those outside the neighborhood or found on internet search engines. In addition, Nextdoor never shares personal information with third parties. Unlike an email listserv or other online groups, neighbor posts are organized and archived for future reference.
Those interested in joining their neighborhood’s virtual crime watch can visit www.nextdoor. com and enter their address. If you have questions about the website you can contact the Bath Police Department at email@example.com or help.nextdoor.com.
"Hidden In Plain Sight - Looks Can Be Deceiving"
"Hidden In Plain Sight" is the name of a traveling exhibit hosted by
the Bath and Copley Police Departments. Adults are encouraged to
explore and interact with the display designed to resemble a
teenager's bedroom. Throughout the exhibit are items that may
indicate a teen is involved in some high-risk behavior such as
substance abuse, underage drinking, eating disorders, sexual
activity and more.
Those in attendance at the awareness program for parents will be able
to get an up-close look at the items in the room and be shown how
they can be used. There is an hour-long PowerPoint presentation that
accompanies the exhibit.
Participants will be enlightened, educated and astonished. There is
no charge to attend the program. No youth will be permitted.

Safe Drug Disposal
Bath Township Trustees are pleased to offer the Bath
Township community the opportunity to safeguard our young
adults and protect the local environment by using the “Going
Green & Clean” drug disposal box in the Bath Center parking
The Going Green & Clean box provides a safe method for the
disposal of expired or unwanted prescription medicines.
Improper disposal of medicines presents both a public safety
and environmental hazard.
Prescription drug abuse by teens and young adults is a
serious problem in the United States. As reported in
the Partnership for a Drug Free America’s annual tracking
1 in 5 teens has abused a prescription
1 in 5 report abusing prescription
stimulants and tranquilizers
1 in 10 has abused cough medication.
The environment is also being damaged by unused medicines.
Medicines thrown into the trash can leach into the ground;
flushed drugs can kill bacteria that break down waste in
sewage plants, damage septic systems, and contaminate nearby
waterways and harm aquatic wildlife.
A 2008 Associated Press investigation found pharmaceuticals
in the drinking water supplies of at least 41 million
Americans. Drugs have been detected in the drinking
water supplies of 24 major metropolitan areas.
Bath residents have the power to prevent teens from drug
abuse and improve the cleanliness of our water. Take
unused and unwanted prescription and non-prescription
medicine to the Bath Police Department parking lot at 3864
West Bath Road. Keep medications in original bottles
or packaging if possible. Mark out your name and
address on the prescription medicines. Drop these
items into the secure green box marked “Going Green &
The Bath Police Department will ensure these unwanted drugs
are incinerated as part of the ecological and safe disposal
protocol. Together we will keep Bath safe!
