Neighborhood Watch is a crime prevention program which enlists the active participation of residents in cooperation with law enforcement to reduce crime in their communities. Neighborhood Watch involves neighbors getting to know one another and working together in a program of mutual assistance. Residents become trained to recognize and report suspicious activities, and can then implement the crime prevention techniques they have learned to ensure residential and vehicle security as well as personal safety in their neighborhoods.
Neighborhood Watch does not require frequent or elaborate meetings
This program does not ask its members to take any personal risk to prevent crime.
Law enforcement personnel can assist you with questions about crime in your community and provide valuable information on how the Sheriff’s Department works.
Neighborhood Watch meetings can cover such topics as Home Security, Personal Safety, Identity Theft, and any other topics that your neighborhood may be interested in.
If you are interested in joining your local neighborhood watch group please fill out the Confidential Information Sheet.
