Neighborhood Watch

What is Neighborhood Watch?

Neighborhood Watch is a crime prevention program which enlists the active participation of citizens in cooperation with law enforcement to reduce crime in their communities.

It involves:
• Neighbors getting to know each other, taking the time to care about each other and working together in a program of mutual assistance.
• Training citizens to recognize and report suspicious activities in their neighborhoods
• Citizens implementing crime prevention strategies such as home security and Operation Identification.

Why Neighborhood Watch?

There can’t be a law enforcement officer on every corner, so citizen involvement is essential to combat crime.

You and your neighbors are the ones who really know what is going on in your community.

By cooperating with each other and law enforcement, people can help fight crime in their community in the most effective way – before it begins!

For more tips or information on how to start a program in your area, please contact Officer Greg Sanchez at 510-799-8276 or email him at
