What can we expect from the Crime Prevention (Public Information) Officer?

The Crime Prevention (Public Information) Officer’s role is to provide you with the information and tools that your neighborhood needs to successfully implement and maintain a strong Neighborhood Watch program. You can expect the Crime Prevention Officer to help you in the early stages of your watch development by educating you about Neighborhood Watch, providing pamphlets and other materials that you can share with Watch members, and attending your initial meetings.

The Crime Prevention Officer is responsible for training Neighborhood Watch members to recognize and report suspicious activity and to actively prevent crime through proper home security measures. Additionally, the Crime Prevention Officer can assist you with resolving crime or quality of life problems in your neighborhood through the combined assistance of the Zionsville Police Department and its Officers. Well-organized neighborhoods make for a better community and we are committed to helping you and your neighbors organize an active and effective Neighborhood Watch.
