Neighborhood Watch is a crime prevention program which stresses education to minimize and deter crime. The primary goal of Neighborhood Watch is to increase neighborhood awareness so that potential crime risks and current crime problems can be quickly identified and combated in the most efficient manner. This program allows residents to become more actively involved as partners in crime prevention. If you are interested in forming or participating in a Neighborhood Watch program, please see the following on-line links for National Neighborhood Watch programs:http://www.nnw.org/
If you are interested in forming a Neighborhood Watch, please email us at WPD_GeneralQuestions@westminster-ca.gov. and we will put you in contact with the appropriate Area Commander who can assist you in getting started. The Westminster Police Department does not mange or run specific Neighborhood Watch programs. However, we do encourage them, will attend meetings as needed.
