Neighborhood Watch

The Neighborhood Watch Program began in the Potomac Westmoreland Shores area in the year 1996.

Each year, 10 million serious crimes - more than half of the nation's total - go unreported. That is why years ago the Neighborhood Watch program was initiated. This program is simply you and your neighbors working together with local police to reduce criminal opportunity on our streets.
