How to organize a Neighborhood Watch meeting
Since the police are unable to cover every neighborhood at all times, you can help by forming Neighborhood Watch. You and your neighbors can stay safe by looking out for one another.
Step #1 Contact your neighbors from corner to corner and both sides of the street in your neighborhood.
Step #2 Ask your neighbors when would it be a good time for them to be present for a Neighborhood Watch meeting. Weekdays - we schedule the block watches at 6:30 P.M. or 7:00 P.M. (The entire program is approximately one hour in length).Topics include:
A. Benefits of the Neighborhood Watch & how it works.
Step #3 Contact the Neighborhood Watch Coordinator at 235-9037 to schedule your Neighborhood Watch meeting. A cover sheet with instructions, Neighborhood Watch materials can also be sent to assist you in organizing your meeting.
Step #4 To begin the Neighborhood Watch meeting, a Crime Prevention Unit Officer arrives and conducts the presentation.
Step #5 The officer leaves, and the people in your area are encouraged to socialize after the officer leaves and become better acquainted.
The Key: Looking out for each other. It worked yesterday...it is still working today. Neighborhood Watch began many years ago when early residents banded together to keep watch over and worked together to protect their early settlements. Today, the Neighborhood Watch concept can bring your neighbors together for the common goal of making your neighborhood a safe place to live.you and your neighbors are safer when you look out for each other. YOU could be the one to make a difference.
