Neighborhood Watch

​​​​The City of Virginia Beach Neighborhood Watch program has been implemented in many neighborhoods to prevent crime. The Virginia Beach program is quite simple – it requires neighborhood concern and awareness and cooperation with law enforcement.
There is a misconception that in order to take part, one must involve oneself in alternating shifts of street patrol. This could not be further from the truth. Neighborhood Watch involves being alert to things happening on your street and in your neighborhood and watch for the unusual.  If you suspect anything out of the ordinary call the police at 385-5000 (non-emergency phone number). Remember, the police need your eyes and ears to protect your neighborhood.
