Neighborhood Safety Since 1972

Neighborhood Watch is a national crime prevention program that enlists the active participation of neighborhood residents in cooperation with law enforcement personnel to reduce crime in their communities.

This program had its start in 1972 when the National Sheriffs' Association developed the original program. At the time, Police chiefs and sheriffs from around the country were looking for a program that would decrease the increasing burglary rate across the country and Neighborhood Watch seemed to be an ideal tool in the fight against crime.

City of Hesperia Neighborhood Watch

In Hesperia, Neighborhood Watch programs have come and gone over the years. It has been proven that an active neighborhood watch program can significantly reduce crime in a community.

Ongoing Neighborhood Watch meetings and events in a neighborhood keep the program alive. Quarterly meetings are held to update block captains on current crimes trends in the community. Citizens working with law enforcement in a joint partnership is a highly successful means of keeping a community safe.
