Organizing a Watch Group

Call the Salinas Police Department. A Police Department representative will help set up a meeting in your neighborhood. The Police Department encourages you to hold Watch meetings in your neighborhood. Meetings can be in a living room, garage, or on a deck or back lawn. Meetings are scheduled about one month in advance and are held Monday through Thursday evenings. Special arrangements can be made for weekend meetings. The Police Department will create a flyer for you, make copies of it and send it to you to distribute to your neighbors. A Police representative will assist and facilitate your Neighborhood Watch meeting.
