ANSONIA >> Residents in the city’s Hilltop section have a new tool aimed at keeping them up-to-date on home and neighborhood security, which many believe comes in handy in light of the recent rash of home break-ins in the area.

Resident Vinnie Scarlata has launched a Facebook page, dubbed Ansonia Hilltop Watch, and the page has received hundreds of “likes” just days since it hit the Web.

“It’s ‘right now’ information,” Scarlata said. “When we post something, we know people will see it within hours and that makes it a great tool for community support and update.”

Scarlata was tapped by Police Chief Kevin Hale to get the ball rolling on organizing a neighborhood block watch for the Hilltop. Creating a Facebook page is an effective way to get the word out quickly to people when posting meeting dates, updates about burglaries, tips on home security and more. Scarlata will work with Officer Rich Esposito and resident Ed Norman, who organized past block watch groups, in posting relative information to Facebook.
