Neighborhood Watch is a crime prevention program enlisting the active participation of citizens, in cooperation with law enforcement, to reduce crime in our communities.
Neighborhoods are divided by blocks; a captain is elected by a neighborhood group to represent his/her block. An initial meeting is scheduled with a Torrance Police Department representative where participants learn how to report and identify suspicious activities and individuals while implementing crime prevention techniques. Subsequent meetings follow.
This program teaches citizens how to work together in creating the strongest crime prevention technique... neighbors looking out for each other. Call 310.618.6392 for more information.
Every other month the Department's Community Affairs unit publishes a Neighborhood Watch Block Captain's newsletter. The newsletter is full of informative information about Neighborhood Watch activities in the City of Torrance, and also includes crime prevention tips, and information to help you avoid becoming a victim of crime.
