Neighborhood WatchWe've got many neighborhood watches already set up, but many blocks are still left uncovered.
If you're interested in starting a neighborhood watch on your block, it's really quite simple. All you have to do is:
Step 1) Contact Brenda Ivey at the Community Services Coordinator's office, 510-238-3091.
Step 2) Talk to your neighbors and see if they are interested; find out the best time for them to attend a meeting (typically a weekday evening about 6:30 or 7:00 PM).
Step 3) Schedule the meeting.
Step 4) Distribute flyers inviting neighbors to the Neighborhood Watch meeting about 7 to10 days before the meeting. The Police Department can supply flyers.
Step 5) On the day of the meeting, give your neighbors a call or flyer to remind them.
