About the ProgramA Neighborhood Watch is a group of neighbors who are willing to communicate with each other and pass along information. The group is educated in crime prevention and watches for suspicious activity. Neighborhood Watch does not require citizen patrols or citizen assist.
We like each group to meet two times a year. This can be a formal meeting or a neighborhood cookout in someone's backyard. A Neighborhood Watch group usually consists of 10-25 households and involves:
- All houses on one street facing one another
- Green belts
BenefitsWhen you participate in the Neighborhood Watch program you will have a direct liaison with the Police Department through your Neighborhood Resource Officer (NRO). Your NRO can provide you with:
- Crime prevention information
- Current crime statistics for your neighborhood
- A list of all registered sex offenders living in your area at no cost
