Communities, apartment complexes, condominiums, and mobile home parks can
participate in a Neighborhood Watch program. The recommended boundaries for a standard
Neighborhood Watch Group is six to fifteen blocks.
How do I start a Neighborhood Watch Group in my area?
First contact the Tampa Police Department's Neighborhood Affairs Liaison in your area and tell them you are interested in the Neighborhood Watch program.
A crime prevention officer will contact you and explain the program in detail. If you are interested in starting a Neighborhood Watch
group and becoming a Neighborhood Watch coordinator, the crime prevention officer would like to meet with you in person at your home and provide you with an application.
Once the application is completed it will be reviewed and a criminal history check will be conducted. The crime prevention officer will contact you with the results.
