The First Meeting

The next step in organizing your Neighborhood Watch group is to schedule a date and time with the Community Relations Division for your first meeting.  A Community Relations Officer will attend your first meeting.  Some things to consider:

  • Plan your first meeting far enough in advance to give everyone adequate notice
  • It should be an informal meeting - hold it in your home or a neighbor's home if possible
  • Prior to the meeting, distribute flyers with an announcement
  • Don't get discouraged if everyone cannot attend - 100% participation is desired, but it is not a requirement for the program to work
  • Because your first meeting is considered a working/organizational meeting, we ask that no small children attend - future meetings can be designed to focus on children if the neighborhood desires
  • Prepare and distribute name tags

When your first meeting begins, explain its purpose and have everyone sign the sign-in sheet.  The Community Relations Officer will explain and discuss the following:

  • The importance of the Neighborhood Watch program
  • The need for the community's involvement in the program and what it can accomplish
  • Information about specific crime problems in your area
  • Effective crime prevention techniques for home and neighborhood safety
  • How to report a crime
  • Other crime prevention programs
