Neighborhood Block Watch -
The concept of a neighborhood block watch is that residents within a particular neighborhood be the eyes and ears
for law enforcement. A block watch is established by persons living within that neighborhood and the police
department supports that group by assigning an officer to act as a liaison.
The benefits of a block watch is reduced crime for that neighborhood and it is also an opportunity to get to know
your police department.
Active block watch groups are located in the following areas:
Walleck Ranch / Legacy Edition
Mountain View Area
Van Buren / Lilly Street
Rancho Santa Fe
