Neighborhood Service Coordinators organize the Neighborhood Crime Prevention Councils (NCPC) in each police beat and other relevant meetings in the community to provide residents with a forum to discuss approaches to solving neighborhood problems.
You can find your Neighborhood Services Coordinator by using this map of the City to find what area and beat you live in.
The Neighborhood Services Division fosters resident and merchant participation at three levels:
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 (see Neighborhood Watch Group description below for more details).
Neighborhood Crime Prevention Councils (NCPC)
There are 53 NCPCs across the City that generally meet on a monthly basis. A representative from the Oakland Police Department attends the NCPC meetings and works with residents to address the three crime priorities they’ve chosen.
Annual Community Summit
At the citywide level, residents and businesses are encouraged to participate in the annual Community Summit and other programs and events that bring active residents together to network, build skills, and discuss issue i.e. Neighborhood Watch groups and National Night Out parties.
