Neighborhood Watch & Personal Safety

Neighborhood Watch

Neighborhood Watch is designed to increase neighborhood livability by reducing crime through active citizen participation and diligence. We are working to strengthen our community through the reduction and prevention of crime within the City of Meridian.

An active Neighborhood Watch is one of the most successful and least costly crime prevention programs available. Neighborhood Watch is a cooperative effort between the police department and the community. An organized program is an invaluable tool and the best way to prevent crime in your neighborhood. Neighborhood Watch increases neighborhood awareness and encourages communication.

Personal Safety Classes

When it comes to personal safety, knowledge is power. Knowing how to reduce the risk of violence, and how to face it, can have an empowering effect.

Personal safety is about avoiding danger in the first place. Reduce your chances of becoming a victim by knowing how criminals single out victims and what behavior can avert an incoming threat. Knowing how to act when confronted with violence reduces chances of freezing in panic.
