Police launch new website for Neighborhood Watch Program

O’FALLON – The O’Fallon Police Department has launched a website dedicated to the O’Fallon Neighborhood Watch Program. The website can be found at http://www.ofallon.org/criminal-investigations-division/pages/neighborhood-watch-program. The Neighborhood Watch website includes information about the program, how to sign up or organize a neighborhood watch group in your neighborhood, and what is expected once a group is established. The program also posts a monthly newsletter to the website that includes upcoming events, recent crime trends, and important contacts. The program stresses two way communication between the residents of O’Fallon and the O’Fallon Police Department as well as periodic informational meetings meant to help residents stay informed on how their assistance can help prevent criminal activity. Members of the neighborhood watch serve as the O’Fallon Police Department’s eyes and ears within the community by alerting officers of suspicious and dangerous activity. The O’Fallon Police Department is always looking for more residents who would like to join or create a neighborhood watch program. If you would like to join or create one in your neighborhood, please contact Detective William Barlock at (618) 624-4545 or email at wbarlock@ofallon.org.
