About Neighborhood Watch

 
Currently there are approximately 150 streets in Oak Ridge that are active participants in the ORNWP. The groups are all over the city from Rivers Run to the Preserve at Clinch River and West Outer Drive to the Scarboro Community.

For more information about the program or how to start a NWP in your area, contact Community Resource Officer Barry Bunch at (865) 556-6696 or by email at bbunch@oakridgetn.gov.


What Neighborhood Watch...

IS - A Crime Prevention Program That:
 
IS NOT:
  • Teaches Citizens techniques to reduce the risk of being victimized at home and in public
  • Trains citizens on the importance of recognizing suspicious activities and how to report them
  • Teaches participants how to make their homes more secure and properly identify their property
  • Allows neighbors to get to know each other and their routines so that any out of place activity can be reported and investigated
  • Addresses issues that concern the entire community by promoting awareness and communication
 
  • A vigilante force working outside the normal procedures of law enforcement
  • A program designed for participants to take personal risks to prevent crime
  • A 100% guarantee that crime will not occur in your neighborhood
