What is Neighborhood Watch?
Neighborhood Watch is a citizens' organization devoted to preventing crime and vandalism within a neighborhood. It is through coordination and cooperation with the Winston-Salem Police Department that members learn non-intervention ways to deter crime. Neighborhood Watch members are to stay alert to unusual activity and contact the authorities.

The Winston-Salem Police Department has partnered with Nextdoor, a popular online service that allows information sharing in just your neighborhood. You can reply to information we share on the pages, or you can send us a private message. Nextdoor can be a useful tool for Neighborhood Watch groups to communicate with other residents in their area, but it is not an actual part of Neighborhood Watch.
The neighborhood boundaries created by Nextdoor are not the same as those for Neighborhood Watch groups and therefore might overlap from one group to another. It is also important to remember that this is not a forum to report criminal activity since it will not be monitored at all hours, so please call 911 for urgent assistance or 336-773-7700 if it's not an emergency. Visit our Nextdoor page for more information.
