The Neighborhood Watch program is designed to reduce crime and enhance the quality of life in your neighborhood. It is also one of the ways the Culpeper Police Department fosters a proactive and interactive relationship with our community. Neighbors commit to keeping their eyes and ears open as they go about their daily business and they have a designated officer they can contact with questions, concerns, or for information.
Many neighborhoods and business areas have established watch groups throughout the Town of Culpeper. The current established watch group list is available down below.
If your neighborhood doesn’t currently have a watch group and you’re interested in forming one, the Culpeper Police Department can help you establish one. If you have questions on how to start a watch group, please contact the Neighborhood Watch Coordinator Lieutenant Ashley Banks at (540) 727-3430 extension 5566.
What is Neighborhood Watch?
The National Neighborhood Watch is a program sponsored by the National Sheriff's Association and supported by local law enforcement agencies to reduce crime and to make America's neighborhoods safer.
What is the purpose of Neighborhood Watch?
The purpose of Neighborhood Watch is to make you aware of the steps you can take to make your home more secure against crime, to show you how you and your neighbors can help each other protect your entire neighborhood, and to make law enforcement agencies more effective in the fight against crime through your involvement and participation.
A Neighborhood Watch project is the logical first step for any community organizing against crime. It requires minimal effort and gets people talking to and caring about one another. It can be the catalyst for efforts such as safe homes, citizen patrols, emergency preparedness, and similar programs.
Law enforcement officers cannot significantly impact crimes of opportunity, such as residential burglary and vandalism, without help from the citizens. By taking steps to protect their persons, homes, and property, watching over that of their neighbors and reporting suspicious and criminal activity, citizens can help their law enforcement agencies effectively reduce neighborhood crimes. This is what Neighborhood Watch is all about.
