Bath Police Department Launches Virtual Neighborhood Watch

In an effort to facilitate a virtual neighborhood watch program, the Bath Police Department partnered with Nextdoor(, the private social network for neighborhoods.

Nextdoor is free for residents of Bath Township. Four virtual neighborhoods have been created to mirror the Bath Police Department patrol areas. Each neighborhood is accessible to only residents of that neighborhood. Residents can use the website to get to know their neighbors, as questions, and exchange local advice and recommendations. For example, neighbors use Nextdoor to share information about neighborhood crime and safety issues, local events, school activities, upcoming garage sales, lost pets, and much more.

Information shared on Nextdoor is only visible to verified members. The Bath Police Department will be able to post important information, such as crime updates to neighbors. The police department will not be able to access the resident’s websites, contact information, or content.

Nextdoor was specifically designed to make neighbors feel comfortable sharing information with one another in order to build stronger communities. All members must verify that they live within the neighborhood. Information shared on Nextdoor is password protected and cannot be accessed by those outside the neighborhood or found on internet search engines. In addition, Nextdoor never shares personal information with third parties. Unlike an email listserv or other online groups, neighbor posts are organized and archived for future reference.

Those interested in joining their neighborhood’s virtual crime watch can visit and enter their address. If you have questions about the website you can contact the Bath Police Department at or

"Hidden In Plain Sight - Looks Can Be Deceiving"

"Hidden In Plain Sight" is the name of a traveling exhibit hosted by the Bath and Copley Police Departments. Adults are encouraged to explore and interact with the display designed to resemble a teenager's bedroom. Throughout the exhibit are items that may indicate a teen is involved in some high-risk behavior such as substance abuse, underage drinking, eating disorders, sexual activity and more.

Those in attendance at the awareness program for parents will be able to get an up-close look at the items in the room and be shown how they can be used. There is an hour-long PowerPoint presentation that accompanies the exhibit.

Participants will be enlightened, educated and astonished. There is no charge to attend the program. No youth will be permitted.

Safe Drug Disposal

The Bath Township Trustees are pleased to offer the Bath Township community the opportunity to safeguard our young adults and protect the local environment by using the red CVS Drug Drop-Off Box.

The red CVS Drug Drop-Off Box provides a safe method for the disposal of expired or unwanted prescription medicines. Improper disposal of medicines presents both a public safety and environmental hazard.

Prescription drug abuse by teens and young adults is a serious problem in the United States. As reported in the Partnership for a Drug Free America’s annual tracking study:

  • 1 in 5 teens has abused a prescription pain medication

  • 1 in 5 report abusing prescription stimulants and tranquilizers

  • 1 in 10 has abused cough medication

The environment is also being damaged by unused medicines. Medicines thrown into the trash can leach into the ground; flushed drugs can kill bacteria that break down waste in sewage plants, damage septic systems, and contaminate nearby waterways and harm aquatic wildlife.

A 2008 Associated Press investigation found pharmaceuticals in the drinking water supplies of at least 41 million Americans. Drugs have been detected in the drinking water supplies of 24 major metropolitan areas.

Bath residents have the power to prevent teens from drug abuse and improve the cleanliness of our water. You may bring old and/or unused prescription and over-the-counter drugs to the Police Department lobby, 3854 Bath Rd. Keep the medicines in the original container. Mark out your name and address. Secure the container and deposit it into the red CVS Drug Drop-Off Box.

Don't let your medicine contaminate the watershed or get into the hands of children or teens. Dispose of them safely..

The Bath Police Department will ensure these unwanted drugs are incinerated as part of the ecological and safe disposal protocol. Together we will keep Bath safe!
