What is Neighborhood Watch?
Neighborhood Watch is a partnership between neighbors and the Oakland Police Department to improve safety and prevent crime. Forming a Neighborhood Watch group on your block is the first step to making and keeping your neighborhood safe.
What are the requirements to become an official Neighborhood Watch group?
* Schedule and hold two Neighborhood Watch meetings
* Complete a neighborhood map
* Select a Block Captain and Alternate for the group
* Decide how many signs you want and where the signs should be installed
* Send a copy of the completed map and roster to the Neighborhood Watch Coordinator
The Oakland Police Department encourages you and your neighbors to form a Neighborhood Watch group on your block. It is easy to do, and is one of the most important things you can do to prevent crime. Please see the flyer of frequently asked questions about Neighborhood Watch. Please call the Neighborhood Watch Coordinator, Brenda Ivey at (510) 238-3091 for more information.
