Neighborhood Watch was
established in 1977 as a joint effort between community members and the Police
Department to fight crime, protect property and ensure safe neighborhoods. Neighborhood
Watch is based on the theory of “neighbor helping neighbor” and keeping the
police alert to suspicious activity in your neighborhood. Neighborhood Watch
volunteers assist the Police Department by educating the public protect
themselves and their property through proven crime deterrent techniques.Neighborhood Watch volunteers lead Department
tours, crime prevention meetings, school based crime awareness presentations
and by authoring the quarterly Neighborhood Watch Bulletin.Because of this cooperative effort,
Neighborhood Watch has proven instrumental in the prevention and control of
crime in our community.
