Helping Communities Develop Efficient Crime Watch Programs

Welcome to the North Dallas Neighborhood Alliance Crime Watch Website!

North Dallas is a great place to live, and to keep it that way, we need the member HOAs to have active Neighborhood Crime Watch Programs. Our once sleepy area is now surrounded homes, apartments, businesses, increased traffic, and increased accessibility. Therefore, it is more important than ever for each homeowner association and resident to take an active role in protecting our neighborhoods. Look, listen, and call Dallas Police. Better safe than sorry, so don’t hesitate to contact law enforcement at 911!

The basic principle of a Neighborhood Crime Watch Program is that neighbors watch out for each other. By looking after a neighbor’s property—and Homeowner Association's common areas—as if they were your own, you will more likely contact the police if you observe something suspicious. Citizens act as extra "eyes and ears" for the police department so that calls to the police will be made when criminal activity is suspected. An alert and cooperative neighborhood is the greatest single defense against crime. By getting to know your neighbors and their vehicles, you will most likely be alert to suspicious people, vehicles, and/or sounds that could indicate criminal activity.

Neighbor Responsibilities:

As a Crime Watch Neighbor, your responsibilities are to be a good neighbor by watching out for each other's property and by reporting suspicious activity to the police. YOU should know the three (3) neighbors across the street from your home, on each side, and the three (3) neighbors behind your residence. YOU should have a heightened awareness for your neighbors' welfare and YOU should be more than willing to report suspicious activity to the police. Citizens can be assured that when they report suspicious activity, their name will be held in strictest confidence.
