Neighborhood Watch Program

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

It involves:

  • Neighbors 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, security through environmental design.

There are currently over 400 neighborhood watches established in the City of Anaheim. If you are interested in starting a neighborhood watch please call our Crime Prevention Specialist (714) 765-5252 or email to anaheimpd@anaheim.net
