The Community Watch promotes an interactive program of crime prevention between citizens in the community and the Klamath Falls Police Department.
It is the desire of the Klamath Falls Police Department to create more of a sense of community for Klamath Falls residents. The program will help put “neighbor” back into the neighborhoods. Citizens who partner with the Police Department will be working to decrease the chances of becoming a victim of crime by implementing techniques such as target hardening of homes and getting neighbors to watch out for each other’s property.
The key to successful Community Watch programs is for citizens to work with law enforcement, rather than relying solely on police to fight crime. Citizens who become the “eyes and ears” for law enforcement act as a force multiplier of police efforts, which will ultimately result in a reduction of the crime rate and makes Klamath Falls a safer and more livable community.
Citizen volunteers have worked with police to form a Steering Committee to help the community take ownership of the program. Area Coordinators also help by representing different neighborhoods with specific knowledge about that particular area. Those volunteers work to act as a guiding force to help identify the principal concerns of the community. They also partner with police to determine possible solutions to address those concerns.
Klamath Falls citizens are encouraged to attend Community Watch meetings that are held on the last Thursday of each month at the Klamath Falls Police Department located at 2501 Shasta Way from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Citizens are encouraged to contact Lt. Rob Dentinger or Lt. Ryan Brosterhous at 883-5336 to obtain further information about the Community Watch Program.
All meetings will be held in the KFPD Community Meeting Room at 6:30 p.m.
