Neighborhood Security Watch Program
The Neighborhood Security Watch Program is great opportunity for homeowners to become involved within their neighborhood, promote crime prevention awareness and strengthen neighborhood spirit. As a Honolulu Police Department sponsored program, NSW members provide vital information to the police of any crime or suspicious activity witnessed. More information can be found by clicking on the below links to the HPD Website. http://www.honolulupd.org/downloads/NSW_2016.pdf
NSW members are educated on the following:
- Operation identification
- Residential Security Inspections
- Reporting Suspicious Activities to 911
- How to describe a suspect
To establish a NSW team in your neighborhood, an initial meeting must be held somewhere convenient for homeowners (neighborhood parking lot, driveway or front yard of a homeowner’s home, or neighborhood park). A Community Policing Officer from the Honolulu Police Department will also be present to discuss rules and requirements of becoming a NSW member as well as additional information on the program. Each neighborhood team will need to establish a neighborhood captain who will act as the leader of the team and as a main point of contact with the Waikele Community Association and HPD.
Established NSW teams in Waikele:
- Celebrations at Waikele
- Royal Pines at Waikele
- Classics at Waikele
- Sunset Pointe at Waikele (including Hoomaka, Hoomalu, and Golf Club Estates)
- Highlands at Waikele
- Fairway Village
- Highland View Estates
- Village on the Green
NSW members who are also interested participating in Citizens Patrol should contact their NSW Captain for more information. Citizens Patrol is an extension of the NSW Program, and involves citizens who volunteer their spare time to patrol the neighborhoods they live in. A neighborhood can be patrolled at all hours of the day or night, 7 days a week, with a minimum of 2 people. Volunteers for Citizens Patrol are required to sign a waiver form prepared by HPD and will receive a yellow Citizens Patrol T-shirt, courtesy of the Waikele Community Association.
The Waikele Posse
The Waikele Posse is an email notification system that will allow every Waikele homeowner to receive up-to-date information on suspicious vehicles or crime concerns in our community. Our program is a coordinated effort with the Honolulu Police Department (District 3). Posse members will be able to receive information on suspicious vehicles that may be active in the community or have been linked to burglaries in the area.
How do you join The Waikele Posse?
Simply write and email to email@example.com with your name and email address, and put “Sign me up!” in the subject line.
All members will be sent a blind copy of the security alerts in order to keep everyone`s email address confidential. There are no meetings to attend and no prior experience necessary. The only requirement is that you be a concerned resident with a valid email address. Imagine how criminals will now feel when they have 500 or more Waikele residents on the lookout for their vehicle as soon as they enter the community.
Join The Waikele Posse today and let’s put crime in its place!
