Neighborhood Watch

  • Prevent crime in neighborhoods through a partnership with the Pleasanton Police Department.
  • By joining efforts with neighbors and the police, the Pleasanton community can help fight crime in the community before it begins.
  • Residents are trained to recognize and report suspicious activities in their neighborhoods and throughout the community.
  • To recognize suspicious behavior residents’ first need to know what is “normal” on their street. Gathering and exchanging information with your neighbors will help identify unusual activity.

To form or join a Neighborhood Watch group, contact the Crime Prevention Unit.

  • An Officer will attend the first meeting to help explain the program, address any neighborhood concerns, and to encourage involvement.
  • Officers provide information about crime trends in your neighborhood, brochures on crime prevention and discuss ways to be safe.

National Night Out

To thank our dedicated Neighborhood Watch groups, the Pleasanton Police Department participates in National Night Out.

  • A coast-to-coast celebration of Neighborhood Watch takes place the first Tuesday night in August of each year.
  • Neighborhood Watch groups of all sizes host block parties, ice cream socials, kid’s parades and potlucks. Make sure your party is registered to enjoy visits from special guests!
  • The Pleasanton Police Department (supported by the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department, City Council, Paramedics Plus and the California Highway Patrol) visit registered parties in full force.
  • First responders enjoy this opportunity to sit down with those they serve.
