Neighborhood Crime Watch

The concern over violent crime is ever present in today's society. Your chances of being a victim of some type of crime in your lifetime are increasing. Being involved in a Neighborhood Watch program could give you and your family an added sense of safety and security. Neighborhood watch programs have been involved in the prevention of criminal activity and the apprehension of criminal suspects. Both small and large communities have participated in the program.

This program is available through the Merrimack Police Department and Merrimack Crimeline. This program is designed to further the "Partnership with the Community" philosophy. Upon receipt of the request from the public, the Community Services Officer will speak to members of the particular neighborhood. He will explain the program and how the watch would be additional eyes and ears for the police department. Your neighborhood would also have signs at the entrances and egresses clearly stating that your particular neighborhood is participating in a neighborhood crime watch.
