Emergency Information

Neighborhood Watch Program

Neighborhood Watch is the basis for bringing neighborhood residents together to focus on disaster preparedness, terrorism awareness, evacuation drills and to organize group training.

Through a partnership with local law enforcement agencies, citizens learn to recognize and report suspicious and unusual activities in their neighborhoods.  Regular Neighborhood Watch meetings help residents build a communication network that works to protect their neighborhood.  They discuss neighborhood concerns with Police representatives and receive crime prevention information such as:

  • Recognizing gang signs and symbols 

  • Identifying drug abuse 

  • Managing personal safety

  • Spotting fraud

  • Reporting suspicious activity 

  • Many others

The more active a Neighborhood Watch group is, the more effective it is in deterring crime from a neighborhood.  Criminals don't like to be seen and prefer easier targets.
