Be the extra "eyes and ears" for reporting crime and helping neighbors. Neighborhood Watch helps build pride and serves as a springboard for efforts that address community concerns.
The Neighborhood Watch Program is one of the most important activities you can become involved in with the Police Department. It has an important impact on residential type crimes. The program enlists the active participation of citizens in cooperation with the Police to reduce crime in their community. It is not possible, or practical, to have a police officer on every street corner, so citizen involvement is essential to combat this social crisis. By cooperating with each other and the Police, people can help fight crime in Paso Robles the most effective way: before it begins!
How to get involved:
- Contact your neighbors to create a list of willing participants.
- Select a “Host” to hold the meeting in their home.
- Contact the Paso Robles Police Department Community Services Specialist at 805-237-4086 to schedule a meeting date.
- Discuss questions and handouts with Community Services Specialist during the meeting.
Note: Neighborhood Watch does not require frequent meetings, you are not required to take any personal risks to prevent crime, and only the Police have the responsibility of apprehending a criminal.
