Neighborhood Watch
Neighborhood Watch is a community based group that plans and carries out crime prevention and safety awareness activities. The focus is on getting to know your neighbors and neighborhood routine so that you can recognize suspicious activity when it occurs and take appropriate action. Neighborhood Watch is organized by neighborhood. Neighborhood volunteers decide for themselves how best to bring neighbors together and what kind of activities are needed.

If you are interested in participating in Neighborhood Watch, call City Hall for neighborhood contact information.
