What is Resolution 79235 and why is it important?
Resolution 79235 describes Oakland’s community policing model which is based on a block, neighborhood, citywide approach.
- At the block level, residents and merchants are encouraged to form Neighborhood Watch and Merchant Watch groups, respectively. Through these program residents and merchants are trained in crime prevention and learn how to work together to solve problem.
- At the neighborhood level, residents and NW captains are encouraged to attend Neighborhood Crime Prevention Councils (NCPC s) where they can work directly with Problem Solving Officer and Neighborhood Services Coordinators to address chronic problems.
- At the citywide level, residents are encouraged to participate in several citywide organizations and events designed to strengthen community poling in Oakland. The Community Poling Advisory Board is an example of one such organization as well as the Neighborhood Watch Steering Committee which works to improve the Neighborhood Watch program.
