Crime Prevention and Neighborhood Watch

The Crime Prevention Unit provides the Buena Park community with outstanding programs such as Neighborhood Watch, home and business security inspections, Halloween safety, police station tours, and emergency preparedness. This Unit is also largely responsible for the success of our Department’s annual Open House and is heavily involved with the Neighborhood Improvement Task Force, the Citizens Assisting Police volunteers, and the Police Explorer program.

The Crime Prevention Specialist coordinates the Police Department’s participation in the annual Special Olympics Torch Run, and the annual Project Give-a–Christmas.  This worthwhile project brings the Police Department together with local businesses, schools and residents to help families and children in our community who are less fortunate.

Neighborhood Watch:
Residents interested in helping to keep the City of Buena Park safe are encouraged to become involved in the Neighborhood Watch program. Neighborhood Watch is a crime prevention program that enlists the active participation of residents, in cooperation with law enforcement, to reduce crime in the community. The Crime Prevention Unit teaches volunteers different techniques to protect themselves, their family and their community. 
If you have any questions about the Watch Mail program, or to schedule a Neighborhood Watch meeting for your neighborhood, please contact the Crime Prevention Unit at (714) 562-3993 or
