Neighborhood Watch Program

The Neighborhood Watch Program is a community based organization of neighborhood residents working together with the Neighborhood Services Division and Watsonville Police Department in order to prevent crime.

Neighborhood Watch Program Goals

The goals of the Neighborhood Watch program are to make homes and families less inviting targets for crime, to cooperate with law enforcement through neighborhood block groups to control crime throughout the community and to provide opportunities for neighborhood leadership development. For more information on how to start your Neighborhood Watch group contact Neighborhood Services and they will be happy to guide you through the process. The Watsonville Police Department participates in each meeting and helps promote the department's community policing philosophy.
