Neighbors On Watch 

In the Grandvew neighborhood, our Block Watch has been designated as N.O.W (Neighbors On Watch). If you would like a sign for your front yard, please contact our Block Watch Coordinator at and one will be delivered to your home!  We also have signs available at our neighborhood booth at the Melrose Street Fair in March, at all neighborhood meetings and at our annual Fall Festival event in November. 

From the City of Phoenix:

Block Watch is a simple program of neighbors watching out for each other. It is designed to enlist the active participation of citizens in cooperation with the police to reduce crime and improve the quality of life in their neighborhoods.

  • • It is becoming acquainted with your neighbors.
  •   • It is working together to identify and solve problems in our community.
  •  • It is helping the police by being aware of and reporting any unusual activities as they occur.
  •   • It is the implementation of crime prevention techniques to enhance home security.
  •   • It is not apprehending someone. Leave that to the police.
  •   • It is putting neighbors back into the neighborhoods.
