About Neighborhood Watch

How is the Neighborhood Watch helpful to me and my family?
As good neighbors, we generally watch each others homes, back doors, and take the time to notice strange cars in the interest of the safety of our immediate vicinity. The Neighborhood Watch communication system will alert all residents to trends and incidents that threaten the safety and well-being of any of us. Being informed makes us less fearful and better guardians of the community we value.

What happens when I am out of town?
You may fill out a form at City Hall to request a Police Watch of your home. This will alert the Pine Lake Police to your absence and they will take special notice of your home during patrols. In addition, you may choose to alert your Block Captain. This will trigger a special alert so that closer attention will be given to events that may occur in your area. The fact that you are not in town will not be distributed to all residents.

How can I help?
Call 911 if you’re suspicious of something going on. Jot down the details while you wait for the officer to arrive. If you are uncertain as to whether you should call 911, feel free to contact your Block Captain. Once the police arrive and take your information, please be certain to request that a police report of your issue is filed. At some point in the process, notify your Block Captain, who will communicate the issue to the Neighborhood Watch Coordinator. Depending on the urgency and nature of the issue, the information may be disseminated to all residents.

Together, we ensure safety
Pine Lake is a small and encapsulated community. We are uniquely positioned to share information and to work together for the greater good.
