Crime Prevention & Safety

Neighborhood Crime Prevention & Safety

Communities with strong neighbor to neighbor ties have improved livability and are less vulnerable to crime. Because nobody knows your neighborhood better than you do, your partnership in Neighborhood Watch is invaluable to the Hillsboro Police Department as we work within your neighborhood and surrounding area every day.

Neighborhood Watch (NW) has been in Hillsboro neighborhoods for many years and has brought Hillsboro's diverse communities together with law enforcement to address a variety of neighborhood issues and concerns.

What is Neighborhood Watch?

  • Be neighborly, get to know your neighbors and look out for one-another
  • Be alert to your surroundings
  • Remove opportunities for crime, don't make it easy on criminals
  • Communicate with neighbors and report to police 
  • Get to know your Community Enhancement Team and ask us about free security assessments
