Neighborhood Watch

The Neighborhood Watch program is about neighbors watching out for neighbors.  Residents who have been trained by a crime prevention specialist are more aware of crime in their communities and are better equipped to remove or reduce the opportunity for crime to occur.  The Neighborhood Watch sign shows criminals that the neighbors are watching out for crime and are willing to intervene by reporting it to law enforcement. 

To start a Neighborhood Watch program, read the startup booklet and contact the crime prevention unit at (804) 365-6110.  You can also read our Operation Identification brochure for instructions on recording serial numbers of your valuables and our latest quarterly neighborhood watch newsletter.
