Join Neighborhood Watch

Neighborhood Watch in Fountain Valley is a joint effort by community members and the Fountain Valley Police Department to fight crime, protect property, and ensure safe neighborhoods. Because of this cooperative effort, Neighborhood Watch has proven instrumental in the prevention and control of residential related crimes.

Join a Group
Contact the Neighborhood Watch office at 714-593-4488 to learn about the Neighborhood Watch group in your neighborhood. You will be provided with the name and phone number of the Block Representative and Reporting District Captain.

Start a Group
If there is not an active group in your neighborhood, the Crime Prevention officer will work with you and your neighbors to start 1. Starting a group is simple. Pick a time and place for your neighbors to gather, either in the neighborhood or by scheduling with the Crime Prevention officer. The officer will talk about Neighborhood Watch, crime prevention tips and crime trends.

Ideal Neighborhood Watch groups are typically small, usually 15 to 20 households, to simplify communication and enforcement among participants. The Police Department is available for these meetings.
