The City of Lynwood’s Neighborhood Block Watch Organization works toward creating safer living conditions for the community as a whole. Based on a partnership between the City of Lynwood and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Century Station, the City’s active Neighborhood Block Watch Organization embraces the philosophy of community policing, identifying, reducing, eliminating and preventing behaviors/crimes that impact community safety and order.
At a time when community policing has been credited all across the country for helping to lower crime rates, it is safe to say that crime prevention starts in one’s home, in our neighborhood and in our Cities. Zeroing in on crime takes involvement. Whether it’s more involvement from the law enforcement agencies or local municipalities putting their foot down on crime or groups of residents who have just had enough with crime, it is community policing that makes a difference.
If there isn’t already a program in your neighborhood and you’re interested in stepping up to the plate and starting one, call the City of Lynwood’s Neighborhood Block Watch Program at (310) 603-0220 Ext. 505 and see how you can start one up.
