How can I learn about the Neighborhood Watch program?

Category: Crime Prevention

Thank you for taking time to express an interest in Thornton's Neighborhood Watch Program. It is only through the cooperative efforts of citizens and the police that the security of our city's neighborhoods can continue. Neighborhood Watch is a citizen’s involvement program, where citizens, in cooperation with the Thornton Police Department directly participate in the detection and prevention of crime. The initial neighborhood watch meeting covers topics such as crime trends, police procedures and patrols, neighborhood watch concept, Operation I.D., and target hardening. This initial meeting lasts approximately two hours and is designed to get your Neighborhood Watch Program off to successful start. Help us make your neighborhood a safe and healthy place in which to live.

For more information on Neighborhood Watch, call the Crime Prevention Unit at 720-977-5000 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
