KHTS, SCV Sheriff's Station Team Up For 'Neighborhood Watch'

KHTS, SCV Sheriff’s Station Team Up For ‘Neighborhood Watch’

The Santa Clarita Valley’s hometown station, KHTS AM-1220, will be walking the crime beat with a new show featuring KHTS New Director Perry Smith and Josh Dubin of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, from 10-11 a.m. every first and third Thursday of the month.

The name of the show is “Neighborhood Watch,” hosted by Smith, with Dubin featured as a regular guest.

The show, which will air for the first time Thursday, Oct. 3, takes an in-depth look at what’s happening in the Santa Clarita Valley from the perspective of Sheriff’s Station deputies, looking at everything that goes into keeping Santa Clarita safe.

As the Santa Clarita Valley’s only local radio station, KHTS AM-1220 was the natural choice for a partnership to talk about what’s happening in the community from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station’s perspective, Dubin said.

“I am honored they chose to interview me and other SCV deputies,” Dubin said.Deputy Josh Dubin of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station

“We already receive a lot of interaction with our social media accounts through our Facebook page and @SCVSheriff Twitter account, but the station is always looking for new ways to increase our interaction with the community,” he added.

Increasing transparency and the availability of deputies is part of an ongoing effort to build trust and a partnership with the public, Dubin said.

The show will discuss community events organized by deputies, such as the Sheriff’s Station’s chili cookoff planned for Saturday, as well as the station’s weekly Nixle crime reports.

The weekly Nixle crime reports, provided with funding from the city of Santa Clarita, help residents know exactly what’s happening in their neighborhoods.

The purpose of the reports is more than crime information, it also and helps for deputies to know where and when they need to adjust patrols based on what they see, Dubin said.

The reports also are meant to inform residents so they aren’t victimized by a “crime of opportunity.”

“While the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station has one of the lowest crime rates of any Los Angeles County station, criminal behavior can occur anywhere and at any time,” Dubin said. “Our hope is that with this show, we’ll increase our community’s vigilance, and add another tool to our arsenal in the fight against crime.”   

The show will discuss programs the Sheriff’s Station has developed through its partnership with the city , such as the Crime Prevention Unit program that has been modeled by several other stations, tips for parents and a question-and-answer segment where the community can interact with Dubin and Smith.

“Any time we report on stories about the work our local deputies do, there’s very high interest from readers, listeners and viewers,” he said. “So I feel like this partnership will really boost our ability to bring our local audience for KHTS AM-1220 what it wants the most, and bolster our reputation as the Santa Clarita Valley’s only community based media outlet.”
