A vital part of the Troup County Sheriff's Office, the Neighborhood Watch program enlists members of the community to help them keep their neighborhoods safe. Members of individual neighborhood watches are asked to keep an eye on their communities and be alert for suspicious activities. They are encouraged to get involved but not to take action against suspicious persons. They are given the latest statistics and made aware of the latest programs designed to help them live a safer life.
Neighborhood Watch groups meet on a monthly or quarterly basis and discuss certain topics with members of the Sheriff's Office. A few of those topics covered are personal safety, residential security, property damage prevention, fraud and con games, substance abuse and domestic violence.
In addition to assisting the Sheriff's Office with crime prevention, Neighborhood Watch members have also become involved in anti-litter campaigns, beautification projects, recycling and other volunteer programs.
