Start a Neighborhood Watch on Your Street

Have you been thinking about having a neighborhood watch on your street?  It’s a great idea, and fairly easy to implement.  At the annual meeting APD Crime Prevention Specialist Pete Gelabert explained the process.  You basically need a block captain and some willing neighbors on your street (they are organized by individual streets) who will keep their ears and eyes open and report suspicious activity.  You can find more information from APD on starting a neighborhood watch program here.

Once your street decides to create a program, contact Pete Gelabert at pgelabert@cabq.gov and he will come out and talk to your group, provide materials, etc.

    Hello Neighbors!
    Some of you have been asking about starting a neighborhood watch. Right now, there aren’t any in Ladera West, but if you have the motivation and a few interested neighbors, you can start one on your street. The board of LWNA is also willing to help you get started in any way we can, just ask! Here’s the original post about starting a watch, complete with the APD contact and link to more information:
