Neighborhood Watch
Roanoke Rapids Neighborhood Watch

The Neighborhood Watch Program is designed to organize you and your neighbors to watch out for one another by reporting suspicious activities in your community.

All to often a citizen will see suspicious person or possible criminal activity and fail to report it to their police department. As a result, many crimes occur that might otherwise have been prevented. Citizens must learn to be wary of their surroundings and perceptive of what seems out of place or out of the ordinary. It may be something as simple as suspicious door-to-door salesman, a moving van loading your neighbor's furniture, or a strange vehicle or a person in your neighborhood involved with drug activity.

Neighborhood Watch is a cooperative effort between citizens and the police working together to reduce crimes in their community. What you report may very well be harmless or it may be someone casing a neighborhood to commit a crime. Regardless of what it turns out to be, the presence of a patrol car in response to your call will demonstrate that your neighborhood is no easy mark for criminals.
