Safety First - Neighborhood Watch

Neighborhood Watch

By:         Rob Baquera, Public Information Officer

              Roseville Police Department


As we move into what our new normal will look like, there is one thing that will never change: neighbors looking out for their neighbors. Whether you’re new to the block, or a long-time resident, neighbors can work together to help keep each other safe. The Neighborhood Watch program, with the support of Roseville Police Department, is a program where residents help prevent crime in their neighborhoods. This method has been one of the most effective crime-prevention programs in the country. If you see suspicious behavior, call 9-1-1.


Here are some suspicious behaviors that might indicate a crime in progress:

  • Someone running from a car or home
  • Someone yelling or screaming
  • Someone going door-to-door asking unusual questions, or soliciting
  • Unusual noises that cannot be explained, like breaking glass
  • Business-type transactions conducted from a vehicle
  • Someone removing property from unoccupied homes or closed businesses
  • Someone loitering in a neighborhood, on foot, on a bicycle, or in a vehicle
  • A stranger entering a neighbor’s unoccupied home or yard
  • A stranger following or bothering children


When you report a crime, it is helpful to provide detailed information to the police, such as:

  • Location of suspected crime; street name, closest intersection, gated community name, etc.
  • Caller or contact name and call back number.
  • Is the crime in progress or did it already occur (less than or greater than 15 minutes ago)?
  • How many people were involved?
  • Were there any weapons or known injuries?
  • Identifying information of persons involved, e.g., race; sex; physical descriptors – hair color, height, weight, facial hair or scars, etc.; clothing; and any vehicles?


As much information as you can provide will help narrow the police search and properly identify a potential suspect. You are the eyes and ears of the police within your community. Working together helps make for a safer community. If you are interested in joining, or starting, a Neighborhood Watch program in your area, please reach out to Roseville Police Department, or check out their site for more information.
