Neighborhood watch program

In 1981, St. Petersburg Police Department began the Neighborhood Crime Watch program. The Neighborhood Crime Watch encourages citizen participation in reducing crime. The Neighborhood Watch Program is “eyes and ears” for your neighborhood and your Police Department.  Residents and Police work together fighting crime and achieve one common goal “Making Their Neighborhoods Safe”. The Broadwater Neighborhood Watch was the first step implemented in our Neighborhood Plan.  The Neighborhood Watch consists of volunteers who patrol Broadwater on their assigned day at a time that is convenient for them.  Patrollers are asked to observe and report anything suspicious and also report any obvious hazards, street light outages and other community concerns. The next time you see any of our Neighborhood Watch volunteers, please take the time and thank them for helping keep our Broadwater Neighborhood safe. Together, we as a neighborhood community can make a difference.

The Broadwater Neighborhood Watch provides a presence that helps deter crime.  Thanks to all of our volunteer patrollers for volunteering their time to help keep Broadwater safe!  We need everyone’s help in deterring crime, please report anything suspicious to the police at 893-7780 (store this number in your cell phone).  Do not leave valuables in your vehicle overnight and remember to lock your vehicles and garage door when unattended.  An unlocked vehicle with a garage door opener is an easy way for a thief to enter your garage or home.  Remember if calling the police even crosses your mind, do so!

The next time you see one of our patrol members please take the time and thank them for helping keep our Broadwater Neighborhood safe.

If you want to become active in helping the Neighborhood Watch you may contact Brian at bdaultgbc@gmail.com or 727-424-9696.

Be extra observant for potential crimes of opportunity during the holidays.  We need to stay proactive and report anything suspicious to the police at 727-893-7780 (store this number in your cell phone).    Remember if calling the police even crosses your mind, do so!    Do not leave valuables in your vehicle overnight and continue to lock your vehicles and garage door when unattended.  We also ask that you do not give work to individuals that solicit door-to-door.  You are taking a risk if an uninsured person is injured on your property.  More crime prevention and reporting tools can be found at www.stpete.org/police.

Eagle Eye Works!

If you have surveillance cameras, please consider registering them with the St. Petersburg Police’s Eagle Eye program.  Signing up is simple and only takes 5 minutes.  You can go online and register or print the form and mail it in. When a crime is committed nearby the police will contact those with registered cameras to help identify suspects.  The police post video and still photos on their Facebook page with great response from the public.  More Eagle Eye info can be found at http://old.stpete.org/police/cache/eagle-eye2.html

If you do not have a security camera system and are considering getting one, here is a link to start your research:
