Our Hidden Valley Neighborhood Watch Program was formed in 2005 to increase on how we might help ourselves in preventing crime in our neighborhoods. The benefits in participating in our NWP are:
- Deter criminal activity by increased awareness and reporting to law enforcement.
- Build bonds with our neighbors as have people look out for one another
- Provide information to our residents on how to observe and report suspicious activities in our community
- Reduce the risk of becoming a crime victim
- Inform residents of activities happening in the neighborhoods
