Learn More about Neighborhood Watch

Post Date:03/08/2017 8:30 AM

A connected neighborhood deters crime and builds relationships you can count on in an emergency. Bring the residents of your neighborhood or apartment complex together by forming a Neighborhood Watch group with assistance from the Santa Clara Police Department.

An orientation and training session for anyone interested in forming or joining a Neighborhood Watch group will be held at Central Park Library on Wednesday, March 15, 6:00-7:30pm. The presentation will explain how the Neighborhood Watch programs work, refresh your observation skills and touch upon home security and personal safety issues.

Neighborhood Watch is not a vigilante group. It is not dangerous and you should never risk your safety to prevent crime. Your job will be to use observation skills to keep a lookout for law enforcement, report suspicious activities and be aware of resources in the community in the event of an emergency.

Pre-registration is requested for this program on Eventbrite.

To schedule a Neighborhood Watch presentation in your neighborhood, contact the Santa Clara Police Department Crime Prevention Unit, 408-615-4876, email CrimePrevention@SantaClaraCA.gov or visit SantaClaraCA.gov/neighborhoodwatch.
