Neighborhood watch programs are an effective way for citizens to interact with their neighbors and to join together to prevent crime. We rely on our partnerships with active neighborhood watch groups and neighborhood associations to let us know about suspicious or criminal behavior. We can provide you with the contact person to inquire about joining the neighborhood watch on your street. If you wish to start a neighborhood watch program, contact the Department at (608)270-4300. We will meet with you and explain how neighborhood watch works. An officer will attend a neighborhood meeting to explain crime prevention measures and how to report a crime.
You can learn more about neighborhood watch programshere through National Neighborhood Watch which is a program administered by the National Sheriff's Association.
