What do you get when you add a house was on fire with robbery suspects trying to make their escape multiplied by residents sounding their vuvuzelas and flashing lights from the patrol vehicle blowing?

You get a well-executed community mock drill.

This was scene Saturday night as the secretariat of the NHVII Neighbourhood Watch Progam staged a community wide mock drill as part of the ongoing preparations for the official launch of the program in November.

The team constructed a mock house in phase 4 Mini Park which served as the ground zero for the exercise. 

The drill began a few minutes after 8pm when the mock house was set on fire by men who were intend on create harm and chaos within the community. The men then ran in various directions in a bid to make their escape. Several alert residents who witnessed the dastardly deed were quick to respond by sounding their vuvuzelas and called the director of security who quickly activated his response team.

The response team was fast to the scene of the fire to assess the damage and secure the area. The team, followed the sounds of the vuvuzelas which rang loudly along coupled with update phone calls from residents were able to track the would-be robbers across the various phases.

The first apprehension was done in phase one after the response team gave chase to the get-away car which was intercepted after a resident blocked their path with their own personal vehicle.

The response team successfully apprehended the other would-be robbers during the course of the exercise with the assistance of responsive residents who alerted the team of the suspicious men on their block.

All the captured suspects were taken to the community centre that doubled as the mock jail and processing centre. The exercise took the team through all phases and ended at approximately 8:50pm.

The neighbourhood watch program will have its official launch on Sunday November 2nd. The ceremony will be held to the community centre and will begin at 3pm. Several specially invited guests and representatives from the political directorate, Jamaica constabulary and the ministry of security are expected to be attendance.
