WVEC 13News has done a story on Portsmouth Sheriff Bill Watson and his Community Enforcement Unit which has had much success in the Cradock area of Portsmouth. We previously reported on Cradock in our article Cradock is taking Cradock back. The Sheriff is seeking Portsmouth City Council’s permission to expand the successful program, possibly outside of the City’s borders.
The newsclip reminds viewers that the Partnership meeting this Thursday will include Lt. Cherry with the Community Enforcement Unit of the Portsmouth Sheriff’s office who helped to set up the watch program in Portsmouth.
