Neighborhood Watch Training
Start a Neighbor Hood Watch in your Community!
The Neighborhood Watch program will help deter crime in the neighborhood you live in. The "job" of a citizen in a Neighborhood Watch area is to be aware of your surroundings, be alert and to report any suspicious activity to the police. It is the responsibility of the police to apprehend the criminals. Yours is to report crime.
The Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office will train you for a Neighborhood Watch Program in your area. Here’s how you get started...
- Determine the area you want to organize. This should be the area you consider your "neighborhood". Groups can range in size from 5 to 150 households. The larger the area, the greater the protection.
- Find neighbors to assist you. These people will form your initial group of Neighborhood Watch Volunteers. A good number would be one person per 8 to 10 households. Determine the best night of the week for a presentation. Most Neighborhood Watch presentations are held during the evening hours, Fridays and weekends are not recommended.
- Contact the following deputies in your area if you would like for them to train your neighbor watch group.
