We look out for each other. Neighborhood Watch is one of the oldest and most effective crime prevention programs in the country, bringing citizens together with law enforcement to deter crime and make communities safer. Spring Creek “watch” participants agree to support their neighbors for safety and security concerns. The Spring Creek Neighborhood Watch invites your participation as a resident of our community. Your involvement will help keep your family, home, and our community safe and will support the work of our security personnel at the front entrance gate.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is Neighborhood Watch?
At Spring Creek, Neighborhood Watch (NW) is simply neighbors looking out for neighbors. There are no meetings or time consuming responsibilities. “Watch”participants agree to support their neighbors for safety and security concerns. Upon becoming aware of unusual, suspicious or out-of-the-ordinary circumstances “Watchers” agree to notify the appropriate contact people.
Examples include: Strangers on neighbor's property...Lost child/Child locked out of home after school...Unknown vehicle in neighbor's driveway during his/her absence...Unusual newspaper/mail accumulation...Medical emergencies...Unusual lights/sounds/activity in neighbor's home during his/her absence.
Who should the “Watchers” contact if they view out of the ordinary circumstances?
Depending on the circumstances, “Watchers” would contact one or more of the following, as appropriate:
- Security Gate Personnel, 540-832-0832
- Police, Fire, Rescue, 911
How would I contact my neighbors if I see something unusual?
Neighborhood Watch participants will be given access to a Spring Creek street-by-street directory with residents' contact information. When you notice unusual or suspicious circumstances, contact your neighbors. Your “watch-neighbors” have agreed to do the same for you! Watchers agree to use the directory only for neighborhood purposes. (Commercial use of directory data is prohibited under Virginia State Law.)
