The Village of Wellington's neighborhood watch program in partnership with the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office serves a variety of functions within the community. Participation in an active watch group provides members with tools that support the safety of the community, in addition to providing access to grant funding that may not be available to neighborhoods without an active watch group.
Wellington is looking for residents to become Block Captains for their street or block. These block captains are an integral component to keeping each street or block actively involved in crime prevention efforts as well as the important process of information exchange between neighbors, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, and the Village of Wellington. If you are interested in becoming a Block Captain or have questions about the Neighborhood Watch program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Neighborhood Watch is NOT a vigilante force working outside the normal procedures of law enforcement.
Neighborhood Watch is NOT a program designed for participants to take personal risks to prevent crime.
