Neighborhood Watch Program

Neighborhood Watch signThe City of San Mateo is proud to have one of the most active Neighborhood Watch programs in the County.

Board of Directors made up of concerned residents oversees the program with support from the Neighborhood Policing Unit.

Neighborhood Watch Block Captains are kept constantly updated on crime trends and safety information through Community Alerts, and are responsible for insuring their neighbors are receiving the information as well. Block captains also organize neighborhood meetings or discussions to talk about neighborhood safety issues. 

SMPD's Patrol Lieutenants are assigned Policing Areas within the City, and are points-of-contact for neighborhood issues.
