Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative has a
Cooperative Watch program in the nine counties it serves in
south central Virginia. This program emphasizes safety and
crime prevention for the benefit of the Cooperative membership
and the public at large.
As the crime in rural areas increases and
sheriff departments' budgets are underfunded, there is a real
need to assist the local law enforcement officers with more eyes
to report suspicious activities.
Cooperative employees in vehicles with
two-way radio communications are in your community on a regular
basis Monday through Friday. We are also on the lookout when we
are called to work on weekends and holidays. Cooperative
employees have been trained to recognize criminal or suspicious
With this specialized training and a
heightened awareness of crime prevention, our employees can
become active participants in making the community where you
live a safer and healthier place.
