What is Rossmoor’s Neighborhood Watch Program?
Rossmoor’s Neighborhood Watch Program is organized, funded and operated by the Rossmoor Homeowner’s Association (RHA).
The Neighborhood Watch Program team is made up of Rossmoor community members organized into “block watches” of 20-30 homes each. We ask you to register your home with us to help our Block Captains have the most up-to-date contact information for you. Remember, keeping Rossmoor Safe is something we all to together.
A Rossmoor resident is the block captain and helps fellow block members report anything unusual on the block or in the neighborhood. The block captain keeps block members informed via email of recent criminal activity and alerts through weekly crime reports and crime prevention information.
Rossmoor Neighborhood Watch signs are posted at key intersections and community entrances to promote the program and to deter crime or criminal intent.
How do I participate in Neighborhood Watch?
Resident participation is key to the effectiveness of Rossmoor’s Neighborhood Watch Program and block coverage. Residents are encouraged to participate in the program as either a block member or a block captain. Your participation in the program helps Rossmoor stay safe by increasing the number of residents contributing to the program simply by being observant and reporting criminal or suspicious activity.
