IT’S TIME TO START YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH!
You may be saying, “Me? We don’t have a crime problem on our block.” It’s a common misconception that neighborhood watch is about patrolling the streets after dark, catching burglars in the act.
The reality is neighborhood watch is a simple and easy way to connect with your neighbors in a social setting. You’ll establish easy means to alert each other when crime events occur, exchange ideas on how to improve safety, and share info on suspicious activity. Moreover, the Sacramento Police Department and LPCA have partnered to make it easier than ever to get started. Check out this simple instruction sheet here and contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
