From QPD Chief Renfro: "I would like to invite all residents of the Town of Quartzsite to attend and discuss establishing Neighborhood Watches at 6:00 PM, on WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 6, 2016, at the Town of Quartzsite Community Center. As your Chief of Police for the Quartzsite Police Department (QPD), I hear and see the need for better community involvement with block watches. The QPD would like to coordinate and establish small neighborhood groups with a representative to communicate to the police department about the activities of your neighborhood. It is my goal to bring each Neighborhood Watch group together with QPD Officers and encourage others to participate in Neighborhood Watches to protect life and property. "Also, QPD has a Vacation Watch Request Form for residents to fill out and be filed at the QPD before leaving town. QPD officers will routinely check your property while you are out of town. I will provide more details about the Neighborhood Watches and Vacation Watch Forms during the meeting. I hope to see you at the meeting. Thank you. Ernie Renfro, Chief of Police Town of Quartzsite" For more information contact the Office at (928) 927-4644 "Cruzin Quartzsite" - A History of Transportation means bring your camel, horse and buggy, stage- coach, or your antique cars, Lam- borghini, ATVs, or anything else that was used for transportation.
