When it comes to safety and security, the strength of numbers can be harnessed throughout your neighborhood. Neighbors may be using some of the program tools – if not give us a shout. We have the tools that supplement or start from scratch. BTW - Inland Flooding was recently added to the Neighborhood Toolkit.
The Crime Watch promotes and fosters safer neighborhoods by providing information, training and resources. You and your neighbors keep an eye out for cars, people, and activities that do not belong in your neighborhood. When that happens - do as other Watch groups do -
telephone calls and e-mails throughout your neighborhood, to the Sheriff’s Office, and other Watch groups. The results have been very gratifying.
Sheriff’s Office of Hillsborough County is our affiliate and Neighborhood Watch sponsor. They will guide you through the setup.

Inland Flood Watch is to keep an eye on storm water conditions in your neighborhood, take photos, compile the what, where, and when. The consolidated report goes to Public Works so they can properly mitigate the area.
This program also promotes and fosters safer neighborhoods by providing training and equipment. After learning crime prevention, first-aid, traffic control, and community policing - citizens patrol neighborhoods and respond to specific non-emergency calls-for-service while driving specially-marked Sheriff’s Office vehicles. Citizen Patrol Volunteers are not law enforcement officers, but are trained on how to spot and report suspicious criminal activity.
