Bring the "Community Watch Program" to Your Street
News ImageCommunity Watch is a crime prevention program that involves all aspects of the community working together and assisting law enforcement to discourage crime. A passionate and organized Community Watch Group (CWG) can make a significant difference in the prevention and reduction of crime in their neighborhood. Now, thanks to the Downtown Long Beach Associates, in consultation with the Long Beach Police Department, this Starter Kit makes it as easy as possible to organize a CWG in your neighborhood. Although the contact numbers only apply to residents west of Cherry Avenue (West Division), there is still plenty of useful information and templates for all residents to use and District 2 is happy to provide numbers for East Division contacts. A citywide CWG starter kit will be available soon.  For information on how you can get involved, please click on "more" below.
