Neighborhood Watch Program

The New Canaan Police Department offers a neighborhood watch program. The goal of this program is to educate and assist citizens in the community by forming a partnership to make their neighborhoods safer. This can be accomplished by showing citizens the following:

1.) How to reduce the risk of being victimized at home
2.) How to recognize and report suspicious activity
3.) How to make their homes more secure and put identifiable marks on their property
4.) How neighbors can get to know each other and their routines so that activities out of the norm can be reported

The New Canaan Police Department will provide neighborhood watch signs to participating neighborhood groups who form watches.
