Please share with your NAs/HOAs, Neighborhood Watchgroups, Crime Free Multi-Housing management teams and residents - have a great Independence Day and be safe!

Neighborhood Watch:
One of our Foothills Neighborhood Watch Block Captains is spreading the word about a Driveway Sensor Alarm. This tool is about $25 and alerts residents when someone is in their driveway. Using this tool, an alert Foothills resident was able to call police from inside his home and officers were able to make an arrest. Multiple stolen items from vehicles were recovered and returned to victims thanks to one of the neighbors using this handy device. Thank you Linda C for the information!

New supporters of the event include Sandia Presbyterian Church, the Albuquerque Police Department's Foothills Area Command Bike Unit, Target Coq or9tioQ, and the City of Albuquerque's Parks & Recreation Department. While this event is a scheduled summer activity for Pack 241 and Troop 10303 members, the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts welcome all area grade-school youth to attend this free event.

''Though this event has grown in size and scope over the last couple of years, the mission of the Rodeo remains the same - teaching kids about the importance of bike safety," said Tim Brown, Cubmaster for BSA Pack 241. "We greatly appreciate Performance Bicycle and the Albuquerque Police Department's involvement again this year in our event, and welcome our new supporters, Sandia Presbyterian, Target Corporation, and the City of Albuquerque."

"Children need to understand how to safely ride their bikes when on the roads and even in their own driveways," said Kristine Willhite, Leader of GS Troop 10303. ''The addition of the City of Albuquerque's climbing wall will make for a whole new level of fun and education to this year's event, especially since the sport of rock climbing is built on rules of safety and responsibility."

Performance Bicycle's certified Spin Doctor Mechanics will also be onsite to give free safety inspections. Spin Doctors will provide general tips for ongoing bicycle maintenance and basic repairs, as well as give each child a size and safety fitting for their bicycle.

"A safety inspection is a great way to check that bicycles are properly maintained and ready for summer," said Heather McQueen, Performance Bicycle's store manager. "Our Spin Doctors will perform a free 25 point inspection and look over every part of the bicycle, including the gears, brakes, tires and wheels to make sure they are in working order."

The City of Albuquerque Parks and Recreation officials, and the Bike Officers of the Albuquerque Police Department Northeast Area Command will be on hand to conduct real-world training on traffic rules, signs and hand signals. The officers are well versed in bicycle traffic training and awareness, and regularly conduct safety-training seminars to educate the public.

Equipment from the Albuquerque Fire Department will also be on display, and volunteers from the AFD will be onsite to answer fire-safety questions. Sky Cycles will once again have their unique bike collection on display as well at the event.
