A Neighborhood Watch program consists of a group of people who want to make the play they live safer. The group works with law enforcement officers to prevent and reduce crime. The High Point Police Department assists these groups by providing information and education to members.
Neighborhood Watch groups are spearheaded by community members. The group should select a coordinator to organize meetings and relay information to members.
The Community Engagement Unit is available to speak with groups about safety tips, home security and the importance of reporting suspicious information.
