CWTW has grown a lot since 2008!  We are working this month to update our database, which is now in the hundreds.  When we finish, our member addresses and numbers will be more complete and accurate.  We will also have a more efficient system for sending out alerts, invitations, calendars, and other kinds of messages to CWTW members, whether active patrollers or eyes-and-ears participants.  

You will be hearing from us soon by email, asking for verification of your contact information and the way you want to participate.  If you would like to add someone to our network, please let us know.  We will even send alerts to your block.
