Neighborhood Watch is a crime prevention program combining the efforts of residents and local law enforcement representatives. Officers of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office have met with residents regarding Neighborhood Watch in nearly every residential area of the county. Crime prevention starts at home. Neighborhood Watch is about prevention, detection, and reporting of crimes and suspicious activity. It is based on neighbors watching each other’s property as well as public property, and reporting occurrences or persons that appear suspicious. It opens the lines of communication between county residents and the Sheriff’s Office.
For more information on the Neighborhood Watch program please contact our Public Affairs Officer at 775-782-9931.
