DeKalb police can help with neighborhood watch

DeKALB – In an effort to reduce crime, the DeKalb Police Department would like to assist residents in implementing a traditional neighborhood watch or a virtual neighborhood through social media.

The goal is to reduce crime by educating the community, increasing reporting and improving communication among neighbors. Communication between each neighborhood and the police department is also a vital element.

Residents are the eyes and ears of their neighborhood and can identify when someone or something is out of place. By cooperating with each other and law enforcement, residents can help deter crime in their neighborhood.

If you are interested in implementing a neighborhood watch, call the DeKalb Police Department at 815-748-8400.
