What is the role of a Neighborhood Watch group, and how can we coordinate with City and County law enforcement?

The Santa Clara-River Road Outreach and Learning (SCRROL) final report (2012) listed public safety as a key concern among residents. During the Reaching Out phase of the River Road-Santa Clara Neighborhood Plan in Fall 2017, many people expressed an interest in Neighborhood Watch programs as a solution.


City residents who are interested in forming a Neighborhood Watch group should contact the Eugene Police Department’s crime prevention specialist assigned to their neighborhood. Find contact information for the current crime prevention specialist. Residents of River Road and Santa Clara should contact the crime prevention specialist assigned to beats 5 and 6.


County residents that are interested in forming a Neighborhood Watch group should read through the handbook below that is provided by the Lane County Sheriff’s Office. This lists the necessary steps and provides contact information for the Neighborhood Watch Coordinator.
