Neighborhood Watch

The Norman Police Department is proud to work with neighborhoods across the city through their Neighborhood Watch Programs. Neighborhood Watch Programs are a proven and effective means to substantially reduce all crimes. In fact, a good neighbor is one of the most effective crime tools ever invented. Together, NPD and Neighborhood Watches are working together to educate residents about crime prevention, while working to help reduce crime in their neighborhood.

The primary objective of Neighborhood Watch is to reduce the occurrence of crime in a neighborhood by: teaching citizens how to secure their homes and vehicles which in turn leads to a reduction in their chances of being a victim of a crime. Together, we encourage neighbors to become more familiar with each other and work in a program of mutual assistance to train citizens in the recognition and reporting of suspicious activity which leads to open communication between the neighborhoods and the Norman Police Department. Always remember, if you see something, say something. 

If you are interested in organizing a Neighborhood Watch in your area, contact Officer Ali Jaffery at 405-366-5279 or by sending an email to Ali.Jaffery@NormanOK.gov.
