Neighborhood Watch

Neighborhood Watch is a crime prevention program that enlists the active participation of residents in cooperation with law enforcement to reduce crime in their communities. It involves neighbors getting to know each other and working together in a program of mutual assistance. Residents become trained to recognize and report suspicious activities and can then implement crime prevention techniques in their neighborhoods. 

  • Neighborhood Watch does not require frequent or elaborate meetings 
  • It does not ask that anyone take any personal risks to prevent crime 
  • Law enforcement personnel will attend your meetings to answer questions about crime in your community and provide valuable information on how the Sheriff’s Department works. 

Neighborhood Watch meetings can cover such topics as Home Security, Personal Safety, Identity Theft, Disaster Preparedness and any other topics that your neighborhood may be interested in. 

For more information on Neighborhood Watch, please contact the program at villaparknw@gmail.com.

DigAlert

Beneath the surface of the ground, hidden from view, are gas lines, water lines, cable lines, and other utilities. If you don’t know exactly where they are, your digging could cause disruption to services, harm to the general public, injuries, or even an explosion. By using direct.digalert.org, you begin the process of notifying DigAlert members who own underground utilities and have requested notification within the area of your planned excavation.

 

If you are undergoing work on your property that could affect utility infrastructure, make sure that you are in compliance with the City, in contact with utility providers, and in communication with neighbors who may be affected by the work. DigAlert is one resource that can help facilitate the communication necessary to prevent an accident.
