Neighborhood Watch Program

  • Phone:
    317-804-3202

The overall goal of the Westfield Police Department’s Neighborhood Watch Program is to establish lines of communication between the citizens of Westfield and members of the police department. Once these lines of communication are established, residents feel more comfortable calling the police department with questions or concerns, or to report possible criminal activity.

We are now utilizing technology to communicate better with our neighborhoods. Nextdoor is a private social network for neighborhoods that helps us to facilitate a virtual neighborhood watch and foster neighbor-to-neighbor communications. The integration with Nextdoor enables the Westfield Police Department to communicate online with our neighborhoods. Residents and police will be able to work together to improve safety and strengthen neighborhood watch efforts.

Nextdoor is a tool for us to effectively share information on crime prevention and safety, public events, and emergency notifications. You can expect to receive local crime and safety updates or you can also receive urgent alerts via text by registering your mobile device with Nextdoor.

Nextdoor is free for residents and the Police Department. Each neighborhood has its own private Nextdoor neighborhood website, accessible only to residents who verify that they live in the neighborhood. Please be assured that your website and information remains private. Police staff will not be able to see any of the content on your neighborhood website except for the direct replies to our posts.

Those interested in joining their neighborhood’s Nextdoor website can visit www.Nextdoor.com and enter their address. If residents have questions about their Nextdoor website, please visit help.nextdoor.com.

In addition to these online tools, when requested, a Westfield Police Officer will attend neighborhood association meetings and share crime statistics for the neighborhood. At the meetings, the officer will pass on information about reporting suspicious activities, the different types of suspicious activities to observe for, and the types of question a dispatcher will ask when a citizen calls the police. Additionally, the Westfield Police Department will provide Neighborhood Crime Watch street signs for any neighborhood that would like to have them posted. To schedule a meeting in your neighborhood or to learn more about the program, please contact Asst. Chief Scott Jordan.
