A neighborhood watch meeting took place at City Hall in Rochelle last night as area residents could voice their concerns about crime in the community.
A number of topics were discussed from gangs to drug trafficking and recent burglaries. Around 20 people attended the event which lasted about an hour.
Rochelle Police Chief Eric Higby is hoping that more local residents get involved if there is a problem in their neighborhood.
He also said they can call the police station and not give their name if there is a problem.
