Crime Watch Program

The Community Policing Unit (CPU) assists with the development of community based crime prevention programs. One of these programs is the Neighborhood Crime Watch. This program is designed to encourage neighbors to get to know each other within their neighborhood. With the assistance of the CPU, participants are taught to reduce the risk of being victimized at home, in their vehicles and in public places. The program also trains participants on the importance of recognizing suspicious activity and how to properly report them to the police.

Citizens can also view crime within their neighborhood and throughout the City using the Department's online Crime Mapping.
