The St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office believes in the importance of citizens
being involved in keeping their own neighborhoods safe by being aware of
suspicious activities and reporting information to our office. This can be
accomplished by becoming involved in a Neighborhood Watch program. If you are
interested in finding out what a Neighborhood Watch program can do for your
neighborhood, contact Public Information Officer Deputy Steve Campau by
email or call (810) 987-1754.
The benefits of a Neighborhood Watch program include:
- After receiving information on Neighborhood Watch, residents will be more aware
of criminal activity.
- Those who participate in Neighborhood Watch have the tools to reduce or
eliminate the opportunity for crime.

concerned about crime and will intervene.

- Encourages neighbors to interact and exchange information regarding work
schedules, vacations and types of vehicles that belong at their home.
Increases Arrests and Convictions:
- Neighborhood Watch serves as a network through which law enforcement can collect
and disseminate information on crime.
