Neighborhood Watch is one of the oldest and most effective crime prevention programs in the country, bringing citizens together with law enforcement to deter crime and make communities safer. If you're interested in starting a Neighborhood Watch program in your neighborhood, here is what you need to know:
Talk to your neighbors to find out who is interested (50 percent community involvement is required)
Designate Block Captains
Schedule a kick-off meeting with interested neighbors
Contact the Crime Prevention Unit with the date/time of the kick-off meeting, via email, or by calling 972.874.3357
A member of the Flower Mound Police Department will attend the Neighborhood Watch kick-off meeting to go over the criteria for implementing the program, as well as answer any questions residents may have. Once the criteria has been met, Neighborhood Watch signs will be installed in your community. FMPD is happy to help new Neighborhood Watch programs take off, however it is up to the residents to keep them going safely and effectively.
