In our February General Meeting we will welcome a representative of the San Mateo Police Department who will update us on recent developments and answer your questions.   With the recent rash of bold home burglaries where people were at home we wanted to have SMPD discuss their efforts and provide guidance on how to keep same and what to watch out for.  We look forward to learning more in our informative section of our meeting

The Neighborhood Watch program is total resident participation and involvement in a police community cooperative battle against burglaries or other neighborhood crimes. Its primary purpose is personal and property protection for you and your neighbors.

As an extension of the eyes and ears for your police department, your involvement will directly affect the crime rate in your neighborhood.

Board of Directors made up of concerned residents oversees the program with support from the Neighborhood Policing Unit.

SMPD’s Patrol Lieutenants are assigned Policing Areas within the City, and are points-of-contact for neighborhood issues.
