Neighborhood Watch (NW) is a Fairfax County Police Department sponsored community crime prevention program. The program is directed primarily toward preventing crimes against property, such as burglary, larceny and vandalism. The program organizes and trains communities to be alert to potential criminal activities in their neighborhoods. Citizens are on the lookout for suspicious activities or persons and alert the police before a crime is committed. In addition, residents learn and implement security measures for their homes.
New Lakepointe has had an active Neighborhood Watch program for over 15 years; we conduct primarily vehicle but also foot patrols. The purpose of these patrols is to use highly visible citizen observers to deter crime. Patrol members report all crimes and suspicious situations to the police.
Please join Lakepointe’s Neighborhood Watch program. The more volunteers we have, the easier our job becomes. To sign up, contact our Neighborhood Watch coordinator, Chris Campbell.
