Fighting Crime in Your Neighborhood

Monroe Police are hoping to reinvigorate the neighborhood watch program and they need your help.

To better protect and serve residents and to strengthen its connection with the community, the Monroe Police Department is looking to reinvigorate its neighborhood watch program.

Officer Muccioli, a two-year veteran of the department, is teaming up with officers Silkman and Panza in heading up the rebirth of the neighborhood watch Program. They are hoping to build off the success of a neighborhood watch meeting in July at Mill Brook Terrace, and get more residents interested in and involved with the program.

“The police department is just trying to get more involved with the community,” Muccioli said.

To that end, the department is putting a call out to residents who would like to have the officers host a meeting in their neighborhood to talk safety concerns and generally about crime prevention.

What is a neighborhood watch meeting?

  • A chance to gather with fellow neighbors and police to discuss concerns and crime prevention
  • Meetings can occur as frequently as you desire
  • Neighborhoods can be a single street, a general area or a condominium complex
  • Details about meeting locations and activities are open to discussion

What you need to get started?

  • Someone in your neighborhood to take a leadership role
  • Neighbors who are interested in attending meetings

If you are interested in organizing or participating in a neighborhood watch meeting contact Officer Muccioli at 203-452-2830, ext. 1336.

Police also encourage residents to report suspicious activity when you see it by calling 203-261-3622 or, in the event of an emergency, 911.
