The Sheriff's Office utilized grant funds to take advantage of a national training, offered by the National Sheriffs' Association, and gained extensive training in establishing Neighborhood Watches that can be catered to each community. The Sheriff's Office utilizes the training and resources available on the National Neighborhood Watch website, and encourages all local groups to visit this website and register their Neighborhood Watches. Download a brochure (PDF) and learn more about these resources.
If your community is interested in establishing a Neighborhood Watch Program, please contact our office at 828-837-2589. An officer will assist your neighborhood in coordinating a meeting, completing a basic home security audit and assist your neighborhood in obtaining Community Watch signs.
