You are the key to helping us keep your community safe!
Neighborhood watch is a national program that brings neighbors together to address crime and to build a greater sense of security and pride in your neighborhood. Data nationwide shows in those neighborhoods where community watch programs are present, crime is reduced significantly.
For many years law enforcement officers and their civilian partners have been working together to reduce crime and improve the quality of life in neighborhoods around the country. Throughout the country citizens are being empowered and mobilized as they participate in proactive partnerships with their local law enforcement agencies. Traditionally a neighborhood watch group is led by a community member who is actively involved and dedicated to the program.
