Neighborhood Crime Watch

Neighborhood Watch  - Contact Dispatch at 817-827-1000Neighborhood Crime Watch (NCW) was created to obtain citizen involvement in discouraging and preventing residential crime. NCW is not designed as a substitute for police protection; rather, they supplement police activities by providing extra eyes, ears, and caring. NCW is people looking out for people, and it is considered a major deterrent against crime. It has been proven that neighborhoods with an active NCW have less crime.
