Established in 1993, this valuable "Citizens on Patrol" type of program allows qualified citizens to volunteer their time to act as additional "eyes and ears" in our community to help prevent and detect crime through patrols and contacts.
Community Watch members patrol residential neighborhoods and business parking lots while paying close attention to suspicious and unusual activities. Along with the visible presence they provide in our neighborhoods and in the City’s business areas, they provide valuable assistance to our officers on the street. At no time do our Community Watch members become involved in arrests or violent situations.
They handle only non-confrontational duties and report activity to police dispatchers via two-way radio. Community Watch members wear a marked, gold "Polo" shirt, black pants, and do not carry weapons or a firearm.
Community Watch Leadership
Members of the Community Watch program fall under the control of the on-duty patrol Sergeant and are under the direct supervision of the Community Watch Coordinator.
