Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Results St Cloud Mn real estate

How do you start a Neighborhood Watch and get signs put up in St Cloud MN? 

Neighborhood Crime Watch Sign

St. Cloud Mn has made it very easy for residents who want to start their own Neighborhood Watch. Here are the basics:

  • Identify other concerned citizens in your area. 
  • Appoint or elect a watch captain for each block size area to be included your Neighborhood Watch.
  • Call John Justin, Crime Prevention Specialist, at (320) 345-4182 to set up a time for him to conduct a start-up meeting. Make sure that you have several times available that will work for your participants in order to make it easier to coordinate this meeting.
  • Placement of Neighborhood Watch signs will occur after the 2nd meeting (please note that the start up meeting does not count)
  • Print out the complete list of Neighborhood Crime Watch criteria for reference and instruction.
 If you are out of the St Cloud MN area and wish to start a local Neighborhood Watch program there are other wonderful resources for you. The best resource for starting a Neighborhood Watch program is your local police department. Contact them through their non-emergency number, and ask for assistance, they will be happy to help. Also check out the National Crime Prevention Council information and be sure to check out

Hi Tish. We were contacted by a neighbor who was having some concerns and we tracked down the information, so why not write a blog. I am glad you have not seen the need, but it's kindof a neat excuse to meet new folks in the area and see if anyone needs help, or has  concerns.
