How to start a Neighborhood Watch

The first step in organizing a Neighborhood Watch group is to contact the Community Relations Division at (504) 712-2294 or by e-mailing the Community Relations Division at  You may also write to us at:

You should determine the geographic area that your Neighborhood Watch will encompass.  This should include only the homes on your street.  It may include a cul-de-sac in the middle of your block, but not the streets on either side of yours.  It is recommended that no more than 25-30 homes be in any one Neighborhood Watch group.

Canvass your neighborhood for interest, discuss crime problems in your area and how residents can work together to help prevent crime.  When talking to your neighbors, be sure to mention the following:

  • Neighborhood Watch does not require frequent meetings
  • It does not ask that anyone take any personal risks to prevent crime
  • Neighborhood Watch groups only report crime - it is the police's responsibility to apprehend criminals
