Neighborhood Watch Program

  • Participate in your Neighborhood Watch Program. Learn who lives across the street, next door, and behind you, so that you can identify irregular activity.
  • Be alert to unusual activities on your street or around neighboring households. Report to police any strangers loitering in the neighborhood or asking questions about your neighbors or their whereabouts.
  • Note the license numbers of questionable automobiles and trucks.
  • Report broken streetlights to your electric power company.
  • Call police if you receive many wrong number telephone calls or calls from unknown persons seeking information.
  • Don't be reluctant or embarrassed to call the police. You may remain anonymous if you wish.
  • Even if your call turns out to be unnecessary, the Police Department won't mind; they appreciate an alert attitude. And, of course, keep Police and Fire Department phone numbers handy at all times.
