Community policing is a philosophy that the Kingman Police Department embraced in 1996. This philosophy takes a pro-active approach in crime prevention by encouraging the community to work with law enforcement to make our community a safe place to live. Through community policing, several programs and services have been implemented.

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:

  • Camelback area
  • Walleck Ranch / Legacy Edition
  • Leo Street
  • Mountain View Area
  • Van Buren / Lilly Street
  • Rancho Santa Fe
