Neighborhood watch is one of the oldest and most effective crime prevention programs in the country, bringing neighbors together to deter crime and making our communities a safer place.
Calumet County Sheriff's Office began the neighborhood watch program in the 1980's. It is a cooperative effort between citizens and law enforcement. The program teaches citizens to assist law enforcement by being the eyes and ears in the community to help detect and prevent crime.
Many neighborhoods in Calumet County already have a neighborhood watch program in place. For those that do not, please contact the Calumet County Sheriff's Office and ask to speak with the neighborhood watch officer. Our mission is to prevent the next crime.
