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.

Neighborhood Watch Association

All Neighborhood Watch groups are a part of the Neighborhood Watch Association. (See the Neighborhood Watch Association by-laws (PDF).)

Neighborhood Watch Association meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. at the Beaty Training Center. We do not meet in the months of August (due to National Night Out), the month of November (due to the National Night Out Banquet), and the month of December (to avoid conflicts with busy Holiday schedules).

The next Neighborhood Watch Association meeting will be held at the Beaty Training and Support Center (1200 N Patterson Avenue) on Thursday, October 10, 2019, at 7 p.m. We will be discussing the plans and ideas for the creation of the Winston-Salem Neighborhood Watch Association website during the October meeting.

As a reminder, these meetings are held in a secure building that requires you to be allowed into the building by and employee. Therefore, if you get there after 7 p.m. there is no guarantee that anyone will be at the door to let you in the building.
