Watch Program

Our neighborhood watch program became official with the Charlotte - Mecklenburg police department (CMPD) on October 7, 2010.  With the increase in crime over the past couple of years, this program will be a vital part of reducing crime in the neighborhood.

 

 The next Neighborhood Advisory Meeting will be Tuesday, January 24, 2017 at 7:00 PM at the Assurance United Methodist Church located at 9700 Mt Holly - Huntersville Road.  Meetings are the 4th Tuesday of each month with the exceptions of July & December (No meetings).  If you have any topic you would like addressed please advise.

The Neighborhood Watch program is an effective way to get the community involved in crime prevention.  As police officers, we cannot be everywhere at once, so we depend on the community to act as our eyes and ears when we are not present.  Who knows better, what is going on in the community than the residents that live there?

 CMPD adopted the Neighborhood Watch program shortly after its inception.  The logo at that time was, "We are a totally involved Crime Prevention Community".  The current logo is, "Community Crime Watch" accompanied by the CMPD patch.  There are approximately 260 documented active Neighborhood Watch programs in Mecklenburg County.

 Neighborhood Watch program is: 
  1. Residents in the community working with the police department to reduce crime and to improve the quality of life.
  2. Residents in the community taking on a leadership role and accepting responsibility for their community.
     
  3. Residents coming together to discuss their concerns which lead to developing a plan of action that addresses those concerns. 

Neighborhood Watch program is NOT:

  1. A vigilante force working outside the normal procedures of law enforcement.
  2. A program designed for participants to take personal risks to prevent crime.
  3. A 100% guarantee that crime will not occur in your neighborhood.
