Demographics
The West Washington Park Neighborhood Association's newsletter reaches over 6000 readers per issue. The purpose of the newsletter is to keep neighborhood residents informed of the ongoing events and changes in our neighborhood. But it is also a valuable advertising vehicle for area businesses. By its very nature of being a neighborhood newsletter, it is specifically targeted to this neighborhood's unique demographic. This makes it a very reasonably priced way for smaller businesses to reach the potential customers.

1. Broken Windows coming to WWP - help make it a success!!
**********************

West Wash Park has been chosen to participate in the Denver Police Department's "Broken Windows" Program. This is a data-driven zero tolerance approach to policing and it focuses police resources in areas with higher crime. This program will include extra police patrols, overlapping patrol shifts, more Neighborhood Inspection officers, more graffiti units, more gang units, etc.

Before this goes into effect, we have been asked to hand deliver 350 surveys to neighbors, seeking their opinion of crime and police work in our neighborhood. We are looking for volunteers to help hand out about 3 of these questionnaires per block. These volunteers will be assigned from 3 to 5 blocks to cover. If you can help us and DPD in your area, please contact Merce Lea at meredithzml@aol.com for more information. We need to get the surveys distributed and collected by 2/22.
