A Neighborhood Watch program is an organized group of people living in the same area who want to make their neighborhood safer by: working together in conjunction with local law enforcement, observing activities or situations that depreciate the appearance or safety of their community in an effort to reduce crime and improve their quality of life. Neighborhood Watch groups have regular meetings to plan how they will accomplish their specific goals. Neighborhood Watch groups have specific leaders and assigned responsibilities.
Remember: Our job is to be vigilant – not vigilantes.
Always remember that your responsibilities are to see the subtle (and not so subtle) changes in your neighborhood, observe and report any suspicious activities, crimes, or other violations of ordinances and laws to the Speedway Police Department. Do not take any risks to prevent a crime or try to make an arrest. The responsibility for apprehending criminals belongs to the police department.
Neighborhood Watch participants act as additional eyes and ears for law enforcement. They do not take the law into their own hands.
Neighbors working together, and with their police department, is a benefit for all involved.
Neighborhood Watch District Map
The Speedway Neighborhood Watch program has been reorganized and there are now four districts in the town, and each one has a District Coordinator, who acts as a liaison sharing information in their respective Districts from Speedway Police Department and Neighborhood Watch members and residents.
When scheduled, meetings dates will be posted on this site, and on Facebook, Twitter, and Nextdoor. Each meeting will include all four Districts (with an opportunity for attendees from each District to meet with their coordinator and discuss specific concerns).
The dividing lines are Lynhurst Dr. dividing the town east/west, and Crawfordsville Road dividing the town north/south. Click the image below for a larger version of the map.
