Crime Watch Signs


Crime Watch signs will be installed upon citizen request. Signs will be limited to local residential streets with generally 500 vehicles per day or less. Only one sign per direction per block will be installed.


Placement of Crime Watch signs on collector and arterial roadways may lead to sign clutter and distract from the effectiveness of important regulatory signs. They shall therefore only be allowed on low volume roadways.


Requests for Crime Watch signs will only be received through the Public Safety Director from neighborhood groups such as block clubs. The party requesting Crime Watch signs should contact the Public Works Director. The Director will review the request and determine if the street is eligible. Signs will generally be near the beginning of the block. The requesting party may be contacted to discuss options. The requester will then be required to get the written approval of the property owner(s) abutting the location of the sign.
