4 Easy Ways to Connect with your Neighbors and participate in a Neighborhood Watch

The South Bay is considered a pretty safe place to live.  Sure we have crime, but we are so lucky to have some of the best police departments protecting us!  However, the police can’t be everywhere, all the time. So it’s up to us to keep our eyes open and be aware of our surroundings. And if something doesn’t seem right, call the non-emergency line police line (if it’s not an emergency) and report it!

Here’s 4 Easy Ways to Connect with your neighbors::

  1. Get involved with your local Neighborhood Watch Program.  The Neighborhood Watch Program consists of active citizen involvement where residents, in cooperation with their local Police Department, directly participate in the detection and prevention of crime.
  2. Sign-up for NextDoor.  Nextdoor is the private social network for you, your neighbors and your community. It’s the easiest way for you and your neighbors to talk online and make all of your lives better in the real world. And it’s free. Thousands of neighborhoods are already using Nextdoor to build happier, safer places to call home.
  3. Sign up for Nixle Alerts.  Nixle keeps you up-to-date with relevant information from your local public safety departments & schools.
  4. Join local community Facebook groups to connect with local neighbors and follow your local police department on social media for updates on events and more.  Most local police departments host local community events like the popular Coffee with a Cop, where you can meet with local officers and ask questions about our community.
