NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH
One of the most effective ways to promote citizen interaction with police is the sharing of information. Citizen groups determine specific needs or problems and share this information with police. The police then act on this information and report back to the group. As part of the program, police also make groups aware of specific criminal activities or the needs of the police department.
The first step is to discuss interest in organizing with neighbors, obtain a map and clearly define the boundaries for your watch area. Step two is to begin planning your first neighborhood meeting. After setting the date, select and secure a location close to your area to hold the meeting.
If you have a neighborhood group who would like to start a crime watch program, please contact Prior Lake Police Officer Matt Nardo at (952) 447-9879.

Guidelines for Neighborhood Watch
Fifty percent of the neighbors should actively participate in the program.
The neighborhood watch block should meet a minimum of twice a year.
An officer or department representative should be at one of the yearly meetings.
The Neighborhood Watch block should participate in Operation I.D.
