Start a Neighborhood Crime Watch in your Area

Start A Watch Group

  1. Recruit and Organize as many neighbors as possible
    • It is wonderful that you are taking the steps to start a Neighborhood Watch group in your neighborhood. The first step is talking to your fellow neighbors about starting a group.
  2. Contact the Baytown Police Department and schedule a meeting
    • The next step is contacting the Baytown Police Crime Prevention Unit. Invite them to meet with your group at a time and place convenient for your Watch Group. It is essential for your group to work in collaboration with law enforcement because Neighborhood Watch is a cooperative effort.
  3.  Discuss community concerns and develop an action plan
    • Discuss the concerns and issues in the neighborhood. Your group should create a plan on how to work towards lessening the impact of the top 3 concerns of neighbors.
  4. Create a communication plan
  5. Take Action: Hold Meetings and Events
