Neighborhood Watch Program (NWP)
For over thirty years, the Neighborhood Watch Program
has provided a unique infrastructure that brings together local
officials, law enforcement and citizens to protect our communities.
Informative neighborhood gatherings
are held to provide information and training in such areas as:
- home and personal security,
- being a good witness
- making your business more secure
- pre-vacation preparation.
Neighborhoods get to know one another as they coordinate
with law enforcement officials to prevent crimes that negatively
impact the quality of life of the victim and the neighborhood.
Since 9-11-2001, the Federal government has issued heightened
states of alert for local law enforcement and has urged American
citizens to remain vigilant for the threat of new terrorist activities.
Even when the country is not under an alert, residents should
increase awareness of their surroundings and report suspicious
activity to local law enforcement.
A quick, accurate description of events, vehicles, and
persons can make all the difference in apprehending a potential
criminal. Any type of activity or circumstance that seems unusual
should be reported.
Some examples are:
to the Benicia CCC Volunteer Registration Form
- A stranger loitering in your neighborhood or a vehicle
cruising the streets repeatedly.
- Someone peering into cars or the windows of a home.
- A high volume of traffic going to and coming from a home
on a daily basis.
- Someone loitering around schools, parks or secluded areas.
- Strange odors coming from a house or building.
- Open or broken doors and windows at a closed business
or an unoccupied residence.
- Someone tampering with electrical, gas or sewer systems
without an identifiable company vehicle and uniform.
