A Neighborhood Watch is an organized effort by concerned citizens to improve the quality of life in their neighborhood. In cooperation with the Police Department, neighbors work to safeguard each other's homes and reduce the risk of crime in their community.
The Lansing School Watch will send volunteers into the neighborhoods surrounding Lansing schools to act as "eyes and ears" for the LPD. Their role is to add another layer or buffer of security to the school property and to act as an observation and reporting program to assist the Lansing School District and LPD. Your eyes and ears are keeping our kids safe! Look, listen, report!
Business Watch is a free program that creates a partnership between the business community and the Lansing Police Department to reduce and prevent crime through shared communication and training.
Business Watch shows owners and employees crime prevention techniques and strategies they can use to help cut down on business-related crime. Training is conducted in-house for your convenience. Training may also be conducted at City facilities if requested.
The goal of the Business Watch program is to teach businesses how not to become a target for crime. If businesses do not take a proactive attitude, crime can creep in before you know it.
