Community Watch

Community Watch

Community Watch is a crime prevention program that involves all aspects of the community working together and assisting law enforcement to discourage crime. A passionate and organized Community Watch Group (CWG) can make a significant difference in the prevention and reduction of crime in their neighborhood.

The Downtown Long Beach Associates, in coordination with the Long Beach Police Department, developed this Starter Kit to make it as easy as possible to organize a CWG in your neighborhood. Please contact Steve Be Cotte, Residential Coordinator at 562-436-4259 to schedule a meeting to start the process of setting up your own CWG.
