This time, the cleanup effort will focus around the Prosserville Park located at W. 6th and O Streets.

Here is an announcement that went out late last week announcing the event:
Neighborhood Cleanup Program
The Antioch Police Department is excited to announce the 43rd installment of the Neighborhood Cleanup Program. This is a collaborative community effort which involves active participation from United Citizens for Better Neighborhoods (UCBN), community volunteers, and the Antioch Police Department Crime Prevention Commission; Neighborhood Watch Program, Target Volunteers, Volunteers in Police Service, community volunteers and the Public Works Department.
Collectively, “We”, everyone who works and lives in the City of Antioch, can make a difference and improve the quality of life. It’s our community and it’s our chance to make a difference.
The City of Antioch Neighborhood Cleanup program is not just for residential neighborhoods. It is a program that will change venues on a monthly basis and it will include business and commercial areas as well. Neighborhoods that are free of trash and refuse are inviting, and a clean community instills a sense of community pride.
The 43rd Neighborhood Cleanup event will occur on Saturday, March 2nd, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Volunteers should report to the Prosserville Park located at W. 6th and O Streets. There should be plenty of curbside parking along W. 6th Street adjacent to the park. Volunteers will receive instructions and the equipment necessary to accomplish the goal. The targeted area is within walking distance. Excluding inclement weather, future Neighborhood Cleanup events will be scheduled for the first Saturday of every month and the locations will be announced in advance.
If you have a suggestion for a future cleanup area, please inform the assigned Volunteer in Police Services (VIP) or you can call (925) 779- 6878. If there is no answer please feel free to leave a message regarding your suggested cleanup area.
Remember, cleaning up your neighborhood can make life better for your family, your neighbors and your community!
Coffee With the Cops Set for February 23
Come join Antioch Police Chief Allan Cantando on Saturday, February 23rd from 9:00-11:00 A.M. in a casual setting to discuss public safety issues, crime statistics, etc. Chief Cantando will be providing a brief presentation on crime statistics. Open communication about community issues is encouraged.
The location for this casual “Coffee with the Cops” workshop will be held in the Antioch Police Department Community Room located at 300 L Street. Members of the Antioch Crime Prevention Commission will be in attendance, and make themselves available to answer questions with a focus on enhancing Neighborhood Watch programs for Antioch residents.
The “Coffee with the Cops” concept was developed as a pilot program by the Antioch Police Department in an effort to improve communication between the Police Department and the citizens they serve. These meetings will consist of a “one-on-one” type format with a member of the police command staff and members of the community. The format of these meetings has been designed to be informative.
The Antioch Police Department is dedicated to promoting the quality of life in Antioch in partnership with our community, by proactively reducing crime with integrity and commitment to excellence.
