Welcome to the community watch page of the Woodstown Police Department. The Woodstown Community Watch Program was formed by a group of local residents who wish to improve the quality of life in Woodstown. The community watch liaison is Patrolman James LaPalomento. Community involvement is an essential tool in fighting crime. We would like to take this opportunity to encourage members of our community to join the community watch.
What is Community Watch?
Community Watch is a Crime Prevention program that involves citizens working with each other and with law enforcement to reduce crime and victimization in their communities.
It involves: 1. Citizens protecting themselves and their property by using common sense crime prevention practices. 2. Neighbors getting to know each other, watching out for each other and reporting suspicious activities to police. 3. Citizens working with groups, community leaders, and, more importantly, law enforcement agencies to make entire communities safe and free from crime.
Why Join a Community Watch?
Because law enforcement officers cannot be on every street corner, citizen involvement is necessary to combat crime. You and your neighbors are the ones who really know what is going on in your community. By cooperating with each other and with the police, citizens can help fight crime in the most effective way – preventing the victimization of themselves, their families and friends. You are the key element in fighting crime. GET INVOLVED!
