Neighborhood Watch is a shared responsibility and connection between the Sheriff’s Department and community. The goal is to make San Dimas a safer, more livable city through crime prevention and problem-solving strategies.
Throughout the years, Neighborhood Watch has grown from an “extra eyes and ears” approach to crime prevention to a much more proactive, community-oriented endeavor. Neighborhood Watch groups are now incorporating activities that not only address crime prevention issues but which also restore pride and unity to a neighborhood. It is not uncommon to see Neighborhood Watch groups participating in activities which impact the quality of life for community residents.
The adoption of community policing by local law enforcement agencies has also contributed to the resurgence of Watch groups over the years. Neighborhood Watch fits nicely within the framework of law enforcement/community partnerships, and Neighborhood Watch meetings can be a useful forum to discuss neighborhood problems and practice problem-solving techniques.
