Start a Neighborhood Watch Program!
If you are interested in starting a Neighborhood Watch Program for your community, please contact the Police Department for details at 478-988-2804. This is a voluntary program organized by the concerned citizens to reduce crime in neighborhoods. Working together with local law enforcement agencies, citizens can learn when and how to report suspicious activities, assist in property identification, conduct home security surveys and implement home security measures and precautions. Early detection is the best way to prevent the onset of bigger problems.
