Neighborhood Watch

Program Overview

Neighborhood Watch is a program that enlists the active participation of residents in cooperation with law enforcement to reduce crime, solve problems, and improve the quality of life in your neighborhood. The program provides many opportunities, including getting to know your neighbors and community better, information on how to recognize suspicious activity, safety information, and updates on the latest crime trends.

Join the Neighborhood Watch Program

If you want to reduce the odds of becoming a victim in your own home or neighborhood, talk to your neighbors about joining the Western Springs Neighborhood Watch Program. Contact Shaun O'Connor at 708-246-8540 to find out if there is an active watch group in your area or learn how to start one.
