What is Crime Watch?
Neighborhood Crime Watch is a volunteer organization composed of Brookstone/Fieldstone residents like you. Its mission is to prevent crime in our neighborhood and notify neighbors when a crime does occur. This way, we stand a better chance of preventing repeat incidents and possibly helping the police with information vital to apprehending criminals. Crime Watch is not intended to intervene in a crime-in case of an emergency or suspected crime in progress, always dial 911.

National Night Out Against Crime Ice Cream Social
Crime Watch's big annual event is the National Night Out (NNO) Against Crime. The purpose of NNO is to make a statement that our neighborhood is organized to resist crime and support law enforcement. Each year, on the first Tuesday night in August, neighbors are encouraged to turn on their porch lights and attend an Ice Cream Social, hosted by Crime Watch and sponsored by the TCHOA. This is a great chance to socialize with your neighbors and eat some free ice cream! Watch for a flier with details toward the end of July each year.
Volunteering for Crime Watch
Although all volunteer positions are currently filled, turnover is inevitable. You are encouraged to consider volunteering for the Crime Watch Committee. The time commitment is minimal-you are merely responsible to make about a dozen phone calls to your neighbors whenever a crime is reported in our community. Being a Block Captain is a great way to stay in touch with your neighbors, welcome the newcomers, and promote a safer community. The program is truly rewarding, as it enhances the quality of life and property values in our community. Any willing volunteers should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
What You Can Do to Prevent Crime
Keeping your coach lights and porch lights maintained is one way you can prevent crime in our neighborhood. So is parking your vehicles in your garage, since theft from vehicles is by far the most common crime committed in Twin Creeks. It is also vital that we communicate with one another and look out for one another. Neighbors should never ignore suspicious behavior or an open garage door late at night. Good neighbors get to know one another by name and help one another out as needed. If that's not the case on your block, don't be satisfied-take it upon yourself to meet your neighbors and talk to them. Make the first move to introduce yourself. Only then can we build a stronger community!
