Neighbourhood watch

This sign when you enter the village of Odoorn tells that they have a WhatsApp Neighbourhood Watch. Villagers who see a suspicious situation or person, call the emergency number 112 first and then send a message to the whatsapp group members.

I'm linking to signs, signs.

Update: the round sign means that the bicycle path ends here and cyclists should continue on the road 😀

  5. We have similar neighborhood watches but I don't think we have such signs. Maybe not a bad idea, although, sometimes "suspicious" people turn out to be my neighbors! :)

  10. Thank you for your explanation. I thought this town was against bicycles. A security app might work.
