What is Neighborhood Watch?
Neighborhood Watch is a program of the Arlington County Police Department. It's a voluntary community safety program for neighbors who care about each other. The program requires a minimal investment of time and effort. The goals of the program are to:
Help lower crime by recruiting and encouraging people to watch for, prevent and report incidents.
Assist people in learning about crime, hazards, community issues, and neighborhood response in times of emergency.
Neighborhood Watch is an effective and inexpensive way to help make neighborhoods safer by:

Why Call the Police
The battle against crime demands the combined efforts of police and people in the neighborhood. Because police cannot be in all places at all times, it is critical that others assist. Many crimes can be prevented if people are alert for suspicious activity and take appropriate measures to notify police. You should call the police immediately if you observe any suspicious activity, even if you are not sure what you are observing. The number to call is 703-558-2222. It is always best if you can offer as much information as possible. All information you provide is kept confidential.
Examples of Suspicious Activity are:
If Your Home Has Been Burglarized
Protect Your Property
Look Out For Neighbors
How to Contact The Police
If a situation requires contacting the Police, follow these steps:
To ensure a rapid police response when you need it, the Police Department has a call priority system. High priority calls consist of reports of crimes where lives may be endangered, crimes are in progress, or where there is a chance of apprehending a criminal. As the call taker is asking questions, the information is simultaneously being made available to the dispatchers for relay to the police. It is important to continue talking with the call taker, answering questions and providing additional information as accurately as possible.
When 9-1-1 is dialed and the calling party hangs up, an officer is sent to the address. Thus, it is extremely important that children do not play with telephones and that 9-1-1 is only used in an emergency.
Lower priority calls consist of reports of property crimes that occurred some time ago and suspects have left the scene. These calls are dispatched based on available police units and may even be handled by telephone.
