Neighborhood Watch is a program that combines the efforts of the Police Department and residents to enhance neighborhood security, heighten the community’s power of observation, and to encourage mutual assistance among neighbors.
The main objective of Neighborhood Watch is to reduce the incidence of crime by:
- Increasing citizen awareness of burglary and other residential crimes
- Training citizens to better secure their property (Security Surveys and Operation Identification)
- Encouraging neighbors to report suspicious persons and activities
- Improve communication between residents and the Police Department
The Police Department will help you bring Neighborhood Watch to your area. Representatives will attend meetings, provide crime statistics for your neighborhood, and present valuable crime prevention information to you and your neighbors.
