Neighbors interested in organizing a Neighborhood Watch should read our brochure on Establishing Your Neighborhood Watch, and contact Crime Prevention Coordinator Mark Wells at 503-823-2781 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Business Watch participants develop a communication system through an e-mail network to share information about potential problems and keep in touch with other local businesses. Businesses interested in organizing a Business Watch should contact their local Crime Prevention Coordinator.
