Starting a Neighborhood Watch
Crime affects us all because it affects the environment that we live in, play and work in. This is why it is important to remember that crime prevention is everybody's business. In our communities, it is our job to be a good neighbor. Being a good neighbor means looking out for one another. Our job together is to come together and discourage criminals from coming into our neighborhoods and disrupting our peace of mind and our feeling of safety. Neighborhood Watch works but it is like any other crime prevention tool, it works when you work the program.
Please consider starting a Neighborhood Watch and or Business Watch for your area, because crime prevention is everybody's business.
Here is how to get a watch group started:
- Just call the Neighborhood Watch Coordinator at 509-477-3055 to get started
- Fill out the organizer application and return to the Neighborhood Watch Coordinator
- Schedule a meeting with your neighbors and invite the Neighborhood Watch Coordinator and or a Crime Prevention deputy where we will provide an informative presentation on crime prevention, answer questions and provide materials for attendees.
A Few of the Presentation Topics Available to Citizens:
- Home Security
- Identity Theft and Scams
- Internet Safety
- Investment Fraud
- Drug Awareness
- Firearm Safety
- Map Your Neighborhood for emergency preparedness
- Business Watch
