Our Upcoming Events
The Neighborhood Services Division coordinates fifteen programs, events and functions that involve residents and merchants in the City's community policing program. Community policing in Oakland is outlined in Resolution 79235.
We build grassroots leadership skills as residents work in partnership with the police to solve problems. Neighborhood Services fosters resident and merchant participation at three levels: on the block, in the neighborhood, and citywide.
What is the Block, Neighborhood, Citywide Approach?
At the block level, residents and merchants are encouraged to form Neighborhood Watch or Merchant Watch groups to meet each other, learn crime prevention techniques, and work together to solve block-level problems.
At the citywide level, residents and businesses are encouraged to participate in the Community Summit and other programs and events that bring active residents together to network, build skills, and discuss issues.
