Neighborhood Watch


Neighborhood watch logoWant to know the best crime-prevention device ever invented? A good neighbor! In fact, neighbors working together in cooperation with law enforcement can make one of the best crime-fighting teams around. We call it Neighborhood Watch.

Neighborhood Watch involves:

Here’s how to get Neighborhood Watch (NW) started in your neighborhood: Canvas the neighbors on your block to determine an interest in having a meeting. Let them know the meeting is held in a home on the block or at a nearby community center. A Longmont Police Officer will try and attend the first NW meeting to update the neighbors on area crime patterns and activity. There is no cost. Frequent meetings are not required, and no one is asked to take a personal risk to prevent crime.

The meetings usually last from one to two hours. These meetings allow neighbors to get to know each other and provide training on recognizing and reporting suspicious activity.

For information on setting up your Neighborhood Watch meeting,
contact the Police Programs Coordinator at 303 - 774 - 4440
