Join your neighbors at a Community Pancake Breakfast from 8-10 a.m. Saturday, November 15, hosted by the Oak Ridge Police Department Community Resource Office and the Oak Ridge Neighborhood Watch Program. 

The breakfast will be held at Applebee’s, 1213 Oak Ridge Turnpike, and tickets are $5. Tickets are available at the door.

The breakfast offers residents an opportunity to meet Officer Brandan Sharp, the Oak Ridge Police Department’s Community Resource Officer, who serves as a liaison to the Oak Ridge Neighborhood Watch Program, and to learn more about the city’s Neighborhood Watch crime prevention program. Neighborhood Watch block captains and district leaders will serve breakfast at the event.

Proceeds from the breakfast will support Neighborhood Watch, in which groups of neighbors organize and partner with the Police Department to report suspicious activity and keep watch on neighbors’ homes. The program helps police reduce crime and keep neighborhoods safe, and it helps neighbors improve the quality of life in their communities. 

Neighbors are helping police reduce crime throughout Oak Ridge in dozens of blocks and neighborhoods that have organized Neighborhood Watch groups. For information about starting Neighborhood Watch on your block, contact Oak Ridge Police Officer Brandan Sharp at 556-6696 or ORNWP President Brad Stephenson at 250-3107.
