Community Watch Program

Basic Crime Prevention

Practice crime safety measures that eliminate opportunities for criminals. Encourage others to join in crime prevention efforts. Aid others when they become victims of crime. Work for a better and safer neighborhood through protecting and honoring the rights of others.  

Important: The purpose of a community watch is to help the police do their jobs.  Do not be a vigilante.  

 

Disaster Preparedness & Resiliency

Learn skills to prepare for man-made and natural disasters. Local, state and the federal government do a lot to prepare for disasters, but neighbors need to be ready to care for each other.

 

Build a Stronger Community

In our fast-paced world, we don’t spend enough time learning about our neighbors.  Watch groups give community members a reason to get together and talk about making their community a better place.  Neighborhood Watch activities are a fun way for community members to get to know each other while making a difference.

Meetings

Neighbors: Please Attend
Barrett Township Supervisor Meetings

2nd Wednesday of the Month - 5:30pm
4th Wednesday of the Month - 8:00am

Suggestion: Arrive 15 Minutes Early
Sunshine Flooring (Next to Lewis')
Route 390 and Oak Lane, Cresco

Note:
We do not have a formal "Community Watch" meeting schedule.  By showing up 15 minutes early, it allows neighbors to "meet and greet" before going into the Supervisor meeting.  They may also decide to skip the supervisor meeting and hold their own informal meeting.
