Neighborhood Watch

Neighborhood Watch members and block captains are the eyes and ears of our neighborhood for reporting suspicious activity or persons to law enforcement. Forming a Neighborhood Watch is the foundation for community crime prevention; it launches the idea of “Neighbors Watching Out for Neighbors.”

Become a Block Captain
Each block needs a block captain. Block captains will work with our LAPD Senior Lead Officer to relay alerts/problems to and from residents, schedule Neighborhood Watch meetings, and keep member information up to date.

  1. Hello,

    I am the on-site leasing consultant at Harborview Apartments on Capitol Dr. and Western Ave. I was wondering if there is an established Neighborhood Watch for this area? I have had many of my residents express interest in organizing our own because we have NW signs posted throughout our community. We are planning to organize a meeting for our community alone but if there is already one in existence for the general area, I would love the information to pass on to my residents. We are a community of 160 condominiums and even with our secured gates, we have experienced excessive trespassing as well as vehicle vandalism.

    • That is fantastic that you want to organize a Neighborhood Watch in your community. We don’t cover that particular area of San Pedro so I would advise getting in touch with the LAPD Harbor Division at (310) 726-7701 and ask to speak with the Senior Lead Officer for your neighborhood. A good tool for Neighborhood Watch communication is
