Neighborhood Watch: A community participation, crime prevention program that involves individual neighborhoods working together with law enforcement to reduce crime. A Neighborhood Watch takes commitment on the part of citizens. It requires meetings, patrols, and other activities. Law enforcement trains citizens to recognize and report suspicious activities to the police. Block captains are made aware of crime alerts in their neighborhood. Law enforcement attends monthly meetings when needed and provides necessary crime prevention information and support. The role of law enforcement in Neighborhood Watch is to provide training, support, guidance and leadership. When the crime rate in the areas with a Neighborhood Watch decreases, it is because of those who have given their time and energy to the project.
Citizen Police Academy: This is a great way to get involved with your local police department. The cost? Your time. And what better way to spend one night a week for 3 hours for 11 weeks. Our Citizen Police Academy offers a very in-depth look at the role of a Police Officer and the services the department offers to the community.
Station Tours: Tours of the Georgetown Police Department are available for school, civic and community based groups. Must be scheduled in advance.
