Neighborhood Watch is a program of the Crime Prevention Program of the City’s Office of Neighborhood Involvement. The Neighborhood Watch Program increases safety and security in neighborhoods by involving as many households as possible in a united crime prevention effort. To begin a Neighborhood Watch you should contacting neighbors to determine interest. You can find more information about Neighborhood Watch at: http://www.portlandonline.com/oni/index.cfm?c=41438&a=26674.
If you and your neighbors want to start a Neighborhood Watch, The City Of Portland Office Of Neighborhood Involvement’s Crime Prevention Coordinator will come and train you folks! If you’re interested, email me or feel free to contact ONI directly off the web link above.
