The Cottonwood Heights Neighborhood Watch program is a great chance to make our community safer, especially when things seem out of the ordinary. We become more effective as extra eyes and ears for reporting crime and helping our neighbors. We get together with those neighbors to share information on how to make their homes more secure. We all watch out for each other and report suspicious activity to the police.

It does not take a lot of time, or effort, to learn how to be a neighborhood watch citizen. You do not have to put yourself in harm’s way. In fact, you should never put yourself in harm’s way. That is part of what neighborhood watch training is all about, and we encourage more of you to consider becoming trained and joining us.

This is one of those situations where a very small amount of effort on each of our parts will make us all safer and more secure. And it will make the job of our Cottonwood Heights police, whom we love and respect, easier and more effective.

Wouldn't it be nice, if you and more of our neighbors were trained to call when something is unusual, so that we all leverage our police enabling them to be even more effective? So, please consider calling our CHPD non-emergency number 801-944-7100 to learn what it would be like for you to become a neighborhood watch volunteer. And always remember our Neighborhood Watch mantra, "If you see something, say something."
