What is a Neighborhood Watch?
A Neighborhood Watch is a group of neighbors who are willing to communicate with each other and pass along information. The group will be educated in crime prevention and will watch for suspicious activity and report this activity to the police.

Neighborhood Watch does not require citizen patrols or citizen assist.

How often does a Neighborhood Watch have to meet?
We like each group to meet 2 times a year. This can be a formal meeting or can be a neighborhood BBQ in someone's backyard. Many of our groups have one meeting in the spring and a block party on National Night Out, which occurs the first Tuesday during the month of August.

How many homes have to be a group to qualify as a neighborhood watch?
A Neighborhood Watch group involves all the houses on one street facing one another, cul-de-sacs, and green belts, which usually consists of 10-25 households.

Why should I start a Neighborhood Watch?
When 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, and a list of all registered sex offenders living in your area which is provided at no cost.

What are a Block Captain's responsibilities?
A Block Captain's job is fairly simple. You are to be a point of contact for your neighbors and the Police Department. The Police Department will occasionally send out information to you, the Block Captain. When you receive the information it is your responsibility to communicate the information to your neighbors. In addition, the police department sponsors quarterly meetings for the Block Captains. We ask that each Captain try to attend two of the quarterly meetings.

Signs may be provided.
Neighborhood Watch signs are provided at no cost when certain objectives are met. In order to be eligible for Neighborhood Watch Signs, you must inform your NRO or Crime Prevention Officer when the majority of your group has completed a home inventory of their property, and your group must have completed the required minimum two meetings. Your group may need to purchase the signposts if a city signpost is not available on your street to hang the signs.

Neighborhood Watch Depends On You!
Neighborhood Watch does depend on you calling 911 for in-progress emergency calls or 444-7000 for non-emergency situations. Suspicious activity calls can be handled with a minimum of personnel compared to the investigation of an actual crime. Do not hesitate to call as often as necessary. We expect more calls from Neighborhood Watch groups.
