What is Neighborhood Watch?
Why Neighborhood Watch?
The Lansing Police Department has long supported the notion that involved residents who work in conjunction with the police are the most successful in reducing crime. In Lansing, Neighborhood Watch groups work with their respective “beat officers” to prevent crime and maintain security in their individual neighborhoods.
What does a Neighborhood Liaison do?
Each Neighborhood Watch will be responsible for selecting a “Neighborhood Police Liaison” who will be responsible for coordinating the group. The Liaison will:
- Keep the contact information current for the neighborhood. Communicate with the Lansing PD about crime trends or problems.
- Communicate Crime Alert information to the group.
- Hold meetings to discuss neighborhood issues (frequency decided by group).
Neighborhood watch resources?
Beat Officers: Officers are assigned to patrol specific beats so that they become familiar with the neighborhood and issues that can come up in that area.
Crime Prevention Specialist: A Crime Prevention Specialist will help organize and maintain the Neighborhood Watch.
Timely Crime Alert Information: Timely crime information around the
neighborhood will be provided, including alerts.
