A: There are several criminal crews committing crimes in our neighborhood because we have become easy targets. The “good news” about our situation has spread amongst various loosely associated criminal elements in the Virginia Beach area. The VBPD cannot handle breaking this criminal activity alone. They need solid information from us to assist them in enforcing the law.
A: It’s pretty easy, really. All you have to do is make a personal pledge to do these things to the best of your ability:
A: It’s really up to you. We need your eyes and ears. You can become a Block Captain or you can keep your eyes open and just help us spread the word. All we need is a good means to contact you.
A: You’ll receive e-mail updates when criminal or suspicious activity is present in our neighborhood. Soon we’ll be able to report solid information faster than criminals can escape our neighborhood. That news will spread amongst them, as well, and they’ll pick softer targets or go to jail. In either case, our properties and families will be more secure. You’ll also receive tips on how to keep from being a victim of crime.

We’ve had some successes catching criminals in the last couple of months, some were made public others were not. We aren’t out of the woods from this criminal activity by a long shot. We have many more successes just ahead of us. Please join us and be a part of the Neighborhood Watch.
