CITIZENS PATROL & NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH
Sister Programs Committed to Keeping the Community Safe, Crime Low, and our Property Values High...
Sun City Roseville has active Citizens Patrol and Neighborhood Watch programs. Neighborhood Watch is a national program under which neighbors organize to prevent crime in their neighborhood and to increase personal safety awareness. It is also a program which strengthens neighborhood ties and provides an opportunity to meet and to know your neighbors. Sun City Roseville continues to nurture our relationship with both the City of Roseville and Placer County and encourage their participation in the association's monthly Governmental Affairs Committee meeting. This nurturing relationship enhances the safety of Sun City Roseville as a direct result.
Our 3,110 houses are organized into 34 Villages and each Village is further sub-divided into teams, which all have a team Captain. These teams form the Citizens Patrol. Team Captains pass on security and crime-related information to residents within each mail station and periodically arrange meetings to discuss safety and security measures concerning each Village. These two programs allow neighbors to become better acquainted with each other, which in turn creates a safer place to live.
Residents complete a Resident Contact Information Form which includes the names, addresses, phone numbers, names of pets and family and neighbor emergency contacts. This form is only shared with the CP / NW Program Assistant and Team Captains. The goal of the form is to provide family contact information in the case of an emergency while maintaining confidentiality. This information has proven to be an invaluable resource to neighbors and to the City of Roseville Police and Fire Departments when a security or other problem has arisen, or the Resident was away from home. Residents are free to informally share any of their own information with their families, friends and neighbors outside of their Neighborhood Watch village.
Participation in the Citizens Patrol and Neighborhood Watch Programs is completely optional.
