Neighborhood Watch is one of the most effective ways to prevent crime  and help revitalize neighborhoods. Neighborhood Watch is a crime prevention program that enlists the active participation of residents, in cooperation with law enforcement, to reduce crime in their communities.

If you're interested in organizing a neighborhood watch group, please come to our next training session Tuesday, February 24 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Roseville Police Department's Mark White Community Room, 1051 Junction Blvd.  You'll learn:
Why you should start a neighborhood watch group

The benefits of neighborhood watch
The responsibilities of a neighborhood watch block captain
The role of neighborhood watch members
The most common crimes in Roseville, and how an active neighborhood watch group can help prevent them

We'll also give you printed materials to help start your group.   We'd love it if you'd RSVP by emailing us at PDCommunityServices@roseville.ca.us, so we can make sure to have enough materials, but walk-ins are welcome too.  Read on for more reasons to join us!

Neighborhood Watch helps neighbors get to know each other and learn how to work together
At Neighborhood Watch meetings, residents are taught how to recognize and report suspicious activities in their neighborhoods. The extra "eyes and ears" of aware neighbors help the police catch criminals. Neighborhood Watch can reduce crime and make neighborhoods safer places to live.

Neighborhood Watch is not necessarily a huge time commitment.
You can organize and launch a group in just one meeting.

Top Seven Reasons to Organize a Neighborhood Watch Group:

  1. Learn crime prevention strategies to reduce your chances of becoming a victim
  2. Get to know your neighbors
  3. Improve your neighborhood's quality of life
  4. Maintain property values
  5. Improve neighborhood communication
  6. Increase security
  7. Solve problems together
