Neighborhood Watch is a crime prevention program operated by residents of the City of Los Banos, with the support of the police department. Its purpose is to create an alert citizenry by teaching residents simple crime prevention measures, and by providing both general and specific information concerning crime in each neighborhood.
To assist our neighborhood watch groups, the Department provides up to date and interactive information regarding crime and other Department activity online through our “Citizen RIMS” portal. Here https://lbpd.crimegraphics.com/2013/default.aspx/ you’ll find a wide range of very useful information based on the location of the event. If you would like to learn more about Citizen RIMS, contact the Department’s Crime Analyst, Patricia Vigil at (209) 827 7070 Ext. 142.
Neighborhood Watch encourages residents to familiarize themselves with the activities of their neighborhood by, knowing who works during the day, which automobiles belong where, recognizing people who belong in the area, and noting those who do not. This basic knowledge, together with a few precautions, will prevent many crimes in our city.
