Neighborhood Watch

Neighborhood Watch

DCSO Officer in VehicleNeighborhood Watch is a crime prevention program combining the proactive efforts of residents and local law enforcement representatives. Officers of the Douglas County Sheriff's Office have met with residents regarding Neighborhood Watch in nearly every residential area of the county.

Crime prevention starts at home. Neighborhood Watch is about the prevention, detection, and reporting of crimes and suspicious activities. It is based on neighbors watching each other's property as well as public property, and reporting occurrences or persons that appear suspicious. Through the strength of our community, the program opens lines of communication between county residents and the Sheriff's Office.

For more information on the Neighborhood Watch program please contact our Public Affairs Officer at (775) 782-9931.
