Neighborhood Watch

Neighborhood Watch is one of the oldest and most effective crime prevention programs in the country, bringing citizens and neighbors together to deter crime and safeguard communities with the goal of preventing crime before it happens.

On any given day, and often without warning, you are subjected to varying levels of criminal activity taking place directly within your own community. The Johnston Neighborhood Watch program is about neighbors helping neighbors and partnering directly with the Johnston Police Department where you will be provided with the knowledge on how you can make yourself and your community safer.
The Johnston Police Department meets regularly with neighborhood watch groups to answer questions, discuss current crime trends, and provide training and information on Crime Prevention, Home Security and other topics of particular interest to your group.

For more information about the Johnston Neighborhood Watch Program or on how to organize one in your neighborhood, contact the Police Department at at 515-278-2345.
