Several Lancaster County residents are planning to spend their Halloween standing up against crime in their neighborhoods.
Lancaster Alternative Policing Strategy (LAPS), a citizens crime awareness group, is hosting a crime watch march on Oct. 31. The aim is to stop the violence and take back the neighborhoods, said City Councilwoman Tamara Green, who founded LAPS.
She said the march includes school children, LAPS members, pastors and other citizens.
“Anyone is welcome to participate,” Green said.
