What you'll find here:

This web site is to provide information on how you can participate in helping your neighborhood and family with knowledge.  This site is not designed to encourage anyone to take the law into their own hands, rather, it is to to help communities recognize what crimes are happening in our own neighborhoods and ways to prevent them.

Our goal is to make it as difficult as possible for criminals to operate in our neighborhoods.  The most powerful weapon to defeat crime is a community coming together as neighbors where we watch out for each other.

Take a moment and look over our site.  We encourage you to join us and make a difference for your family and neighbors.


Lessen the chance of criminal activity.  One of the major things that you can do is do everything possible not to be thought of by criminals as an easy target. Such as, if you have to carry large amounts of cash or valuables do everything you can while walking in public to not make it obvious that you have them in your possession. But if you do happen to get mugged give the thief the cash and jewelry the most important thing to remember at this point is that it's just stuff. It is not worth you getting harmed in any way.
