Neighborhood Watch Binder

The following documents are the neighborhood watch education and instructions distributed by the Sanford Police Department. These were the guidelines in place at the time of the Trayvon Martin shooting. During that time, George Zimmerman was the chairperson of the Retreat at Twin Lakes Homeowners Association, serving as the contact person if there were incidents in the neighborhood that required police intervention. Residents were told to contact Zimmerman if they were unable to contact police about their concerns.

    The NW coordinator, which is what George was considered to be by the SPD, was supposed to return the necessary paperwork for their NW members, including the block captains names and phone numbers, to the SPD NW Director. However, George never got around to it. He did take the time to write a letter of glowing praise regarding Wendy Dorival for all the work she did in pulling the meeting together but he just couldn’t find the time to do his job. He did find time to do what he wasn’t supposed to do, patrol the neighborhood in the car with his lights off, confront residents who he didn’t recognize, demanding I.D. from them without ever identifying himself and refusing to do so when asked. GZ is a wannabe cop, he wanted to be the person in charge, demanding respect from others but never got it. Taaffe knew what he was all about because he said when interviewed that Trayvon should have just told him who he was and that he was staying in the neighborhood, he thought he should have respected GZ. Bullshit! GZ even went so far as to follow residents who lived there to their houses and watched as they pulled into the garage, checking up on them. When someone attempted to ask him what he was doing, he drove away. This should all come out in the trial and then George’s protests about how he’d never confront anyone will be seen for the lies they are.

      Do you know GZ personally? You seem to have a lot of info on him. Did you call the police with this information? It may have changed the outcome. Please contact the proper authorities. There is still an ongoing investigation by the DOJ. We are still seeking justice for this young man.

      I have read similar things about GZ elsewhere. He wasn’t interested in being a NW coordinator, he was looking for an excuse to patrol his neighborhood and play cop, in a way that he wasn’t supposed to be doing under NW. Even the police have to identify themselves if asked. Why would someone in NW, who doesn’t have a uniform or a badge, think that he can expect people to treat him as an authority when he won’t even tell them why he should be treated as one?

    Please note: The manual clearly states the neighborhood watch person is NOT to attempt to confront or apprehend the suspect. That is the job of the police! WTF GZ?!

    GZ claims that he wasn’t on NW that night so he was basically a vigilante.

    no he was a killer stalker
