Neighborhood Watch

What is Neighborhood Watch?

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

What does it involve?

Neighborhood Watch involves:

  • Neighborhood getting to know each other and working together in a program of mutual assistance.
  • Citizens being trained to recognize and report suspicious activities in their neighborhoods.
  • Implementation of crime prevention techniques, such as, home security and Operation Identification.

You may hear it called Neighborhood Watch, Home Alert, Citizen Crime Watch or Block Watch. The names differ, but the idea is the same: Neighbors looking out for each other.

How to get a neighborhood watch started

Contact your neighbors to see if there is interest in starting a neighborhood watch program. If there is, the next step is to call 925-779-6980 and leave a message stating your name and phone number and possible dates you and your neighbors would be available for a first neighborhood watch meeting. You will be called back and a neighborhood watch meeting will be arranged. At this meeting the details of the neighborhood watch program will be discussed and information will be given to assist in setting up your neighborhood watch.

Operation Identification

Successful Operation Identification programs help deter burglars, assist in the arrest and prosecution of criminals and facilitate the return of stolen property.

Residents should be encouraged to engrave their driver’s license number on their personal property. This coupled with Operation Identification decals on doors and windows warn “would-be” burglars that valuables are marked.

You may want to purchase an engraver for use by members of your group. The police department also has engravers for your Neighborhood Watch Program to borrow at no cost. They are available through the Neighborhood Watch Program at
