Neighborhood Watch is a program used throughout the nation where neighbors look out for each other. Assisted by Sheriff’s Office employees, a neighbor opens their home to the neighborhood and a short but informative meeting is held. At the meeting such things as when to call 911 is discussed as well as a block captain is decided upon. Home Security is discussed as well. The block captain becomes the direct contact for a designated Sheriff’s Office representative. A telephone chain is completed and Neighborhood Watch signs are handed out.
Anyone interested in working with the Sheriff’s Office and forming a Neighborhood or Business Watch group is encouraged to call us at (209) 754-6500. Please provide your contact information, the program you are interested in, and a Sheriff’s Office representative specializing in community outreach will be in touch.
