Douglas sheriff to restart Neighborhood Watch program


The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is restarting its Neighborhood Watch program.

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.

Groups of neighbors gather to share information on things occurring in their neighborhood via email, social media, and group meetings. The sheriff’s office is involved and provides updated statistics which are neighborhood specific, answers safety questions, and keeps an open, direct line of communication between the neighborhoods and law enforcement.

DCSO invites all current Neighborhood Watch programs and any neighborhoods who are wishing to start a Neighborhood Watch program specific to their area to contact Citizen Patrol Officer John Alexander at 619-889-1086 or775-783-6466.
