We need your help to have a true effect on crime in your neighborhood. The Waukesha Police Department wants to work with you to make your neighborhood, and our entire community, a safer, better place to live.
As our community continues to grow, it only stands to reason that crime too will grow. We can't stop growth, progress, or seal our borders. What we can do is recognize a potential problem and do our best to address it before it becomes a major issue. Together as a community, we can address this through Neighborhood Watch programs.
Purpose of Neighborhood Watch
Neighborhood Watch helps reduce the potential for crime in your neighborhood. Neighborhood Watch is not about you taking police action, since that's our job. It is about being an observant neighbor.
Forming a Neighborhood Watch
We ask you and your neighbors to get together, get to know each other. You become familiar, and more observant about what is "normal" for your neighborhood. Then if you see someone, or something that is out of place that appears suspicious, call the police and allow us to check it out.
How the Police Department Can Help
We will assist you in organizing your block watch, provide speakers for your meetings, and keep you informed on what is going on in our community and your neighborhood.
Customizing Your Watch
Your block watch is set up by you and customized to your neighborhood needs. You decide how often to meet, where to meet, and what topics you want to learn more about.
If you're interested in starting a watch or obtaining more information, contact our Community Policing Unit at 262-524-3944.
