|Crime Watch Page Created for North Adams
08:54PM / Friday, February 12, 2010
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — There's a new crime watch page on Facebook for city residents.
The page was created by Jennifer Breen Kirsch, a local attorney who's become active in crime prevention after her parents' home was broken into days after Christmas. Kirsch, working with the city and local organizations, has spearheaded the community watch group.

More recently, homes in North Adams, Adams, Cheshire and Williamstown have been
