In hopes of minimizing car break-ins, stolen packages and other residential crimes, the Vallejo Police Department calls on Vallejo residents to look out for one another in their Neighborhood Watch Program.

The purpose of the program is to provide a platform for neighbors to document their concerns and monitor crime trends in their area.

To set up a local group, residents can define their neighborhood on the department’s crime mapping software, invite neighbors to join, define the group’s leaders and submit an application.

Members of registered programs will receive information on how to identify and report crimes safely, along with the latest numbers on local crimes. The police department also suggests that neighbors download the Nextdoor app to keep in contact with nearby residents.

“If you see something, say something,” stated Vallejo Chief of Police Shawny K. Williams. “The best eyes and ears in our neighborhoods are the people who live there. We can all make an impact by working together.”

More information on the Neighborhood Watch Program can be found on the department’s website.
