Some Frontenac residents take extra measures to create safer community

Updated:
     Some residents in Frontenac, Kansas are taking extra measures to create a safer community.
     A public meeting tonight provided information on setting up Neighborhood Watch programs, personal defense and home security methods.
     Several examples included mace and handheld stun-guns, some even disguised as a cell phone.
     The Neighborhood Watch program allows 7 to 10 residents to group together to help watch out for unknown vehicles or people outside each other's homes.
     Signs are also placed around neighborhoods, which helps deter criminals.
     The department also encourages folks to consider investing in motion detectors, security cameras and alarm systems for additional security.
     "They need to take care of themselves and their own safety prior to calling 911 and getting us there, because sometimes we're not going to get there before the crime," said Chief Randy Flora, Frontenac Police.
     "You have to look out for yourself and we all have to take care of each other," said Megan Fry, Frontenac resident.  "That's what a community is about."
     Chief Flora plans on hosting these meetings every 4 to 6 months.
     He also encourages anyone seeking additional information on the Neighborhood Watch program or home security methods to contact the Frontenac Police Department.
