Crime Watch Meetings

Crime Watch 1.png The Neighborhood Watch Program is a crime prevention program that enlists active participants of residents in cooperation with law enforcement to reduce crime, solve problems, and improve the quality of life in the area in which they live.

The Wheeling Police Department facilitates these programs by holding community meetings, special events, and providing educational training and communications. Neighborhood Watch participants are also encouraged to take part in programs such as the Citizen Police Academy and the National Night Out Against Crime, which is held on the first Tuesday in August.
