Neighborhood Watch

 

What is Neighborhood Watch?

  • Neighborhood Watch is a crime prevention program which enlists the active participation of residents in cooperation with the 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

    * Residents trained to recognize and report suspicious activities in their neighborhoods; and

    * Implementation of crime prevention techniques such as home security, Operation Identification, etc.

    You may hear it called Neighborhood Watch, Home Alert, Citizen Crime Watch or Block Watch, but the idea is all the same:

    NEIGHBORS LOOKING OUT FOR EACH OTHER!


  • How Do I Get Involved?

     FIRST: Contact the Ector County Sheriffs Office Crime Prevention Unit.

    Lt. Roy Gladden can be reached at 432-498-4045.

    Explain that you are interested in joining or starting a Neighborhood Watch group.

    THEN: Our office will set up an appointment for you to come out to get you started on your way to a safer community.

     

REMEMBER:

 

Law enforcement officers can’t be everywhere at once,

But you and your neighbors can be there.

Put that "neighborhood know how" to work.

 

It’s Simple:

· Use your eyes and ears and then your telephone

 

· If you spot something suspicious, call the Ector County Sheriff’s Office at 432-335-3050 and an officer will respond to your needs.
