Neighborhood Watch

The Arcadia Police Department's Neighborhood Watch program is administered by the Community Affairs Office. The mission of the program is to educate community residents regarding their roles and responsibilities in the prevention of crime, and to encourage them to take active measures to prevent crime. The program calls upon residents to step forward and assist the police in organizing the community into a cohesive unit working toward the goal of building a safer, crime-free neighborhood. Neighborhood Watch groups discuss neighborhood crime problems with the objective of developing solutions to local problems. Arcadia Police Officers supply crime information to neighborhood watch organizations and instruct these groups in various crime prevention techniques.

As an Arcadia resident, our Neighborhood Watch program is an opportunity for you to take part in reducing crime in Arcadia and increasing your safety by:

  • Participating in neighborhood watch
  • Increasing your safety knowledge and awareness
  • Getting to know your neighbors and neighborhood
Our most current campaign is "See Something - Say Something", which means if you see unusual activity in your neighborhood, don't wait to alert law enforcement, pick up the phone and call the Arcadia Police Department at (626) 574-5123 or dial 9-1-1 immediately. Alert police to anything that may look suspicious. APD wants to ensure your safety, and your call to alert an officer is the best way that you can report important information.
