City of Saratoga Neighborhood Watch

Tips & Trends

In December and January, there was an increase in the number of residential burglaries. In some of these cases, suspects entered homes through windows and doors that were left open and/or unlocked. Always close and lock all windows, doors, fences, and gates. Never forget to turn on your home alarm overnight and when you’re out of the house. When triggered, home alarms can often scare off criminals. 


Neighborhood Watch Annual Gatherings

As spring showers bring May flowers, start making plans for your Neighborhood Watch gathering. Neighborhood Watch groups are required to hold and report a gathering every calendar year. Below are some tips to make your gathering a success!

  • Keep your gathering simple and affordable by inviting your neighbors to meet up at a local coffee shop or pizza parlor to share news and updates.
  • Consider inviting the Sheriff’s Office to your gathering to hear the latest trends and tips. Sheriff’s Office attendance is not required.
  • Registered groups can also request a $300 Neighborhood Watch grant!
