Help Prevent Crime, Sign Up For Neighborhood Watch

Want to help prevent crime on your street? Bellevue police are looking for neighborhood watch volunteers.

This year interest in the neighborhood watch program has gone down, so police are hoping more people will now sign up.

Roger Cox said, “Unfortunately our officers can't be everywhere. As good as they are they can't cover the whole city at one time, so neighborhood watch are the ears and eyes of the police department through the citizens who are out in their neighborhoods all day long. With their trained ears and eyes they can detect crime much quicker than we can than just driving up on it."

The cost to start a neighborhood watch on your street is free and you get free training. For more information you can contact Cox at
