FAIRFIELD - Fairfield police announced Friday plans to launch a new neighborhood watch program in an effort to improve safety in the community.

The new program will feature a Web site to keep residents informed on anything from crime to health issues in the area.

Gerry Alessi, who has been pushing for a new watch system for a long time, says this is a welcome change.

"The people are going to have a pulse on what's going on in their own town," he says.

Police say they plan to launch the site and program in February, and they're looking for volunteers.
