Participate in Neighborhood Watch and help be the eyes and ears of the Dunwoody Police Department in your neighborhood.
The Neighborhood Watch Program is a great way for you to actively participate in maintaining the safety of your neighborhood. The Dunwoody Police Department Community Outreach Unit is available to assist with the training and setting up of Neighborhood Watch programs.
The Neighborhood Watch program is one of the oldest and best-known crime prevention concepts in North America. In the late 1960’s, an increase in crime heightened the need for a crime prevention initiative focused on residential areas and involving local citizens. The National Sheriffs' Association (NSA) responded, creating the National Neighborhood Watch Program in 1972 to assist citizens and law enforcement.

You only need a few concerned citizens to spearhead a new Neighborhood Watch Program. Working together with your neighbors and the Dunwoody Police Department, you can help:
- Reduce opportunities for crime to occur
- Improve safety in your neighborhood
- Report suspicious activity
