Crime Watch Committee

Chairperson: OPEN

The Crime Watch Committee is made of up Block Captains who work to make Meridian safe for everyone and help relay important information to residents on their block such as crime reported in our neighborhood and suspicious activity.  We meet once a quarter and email out monthly neighborhood crime statistics.  If you are interested in doing your part to make Meridian a safe place to live, sign up on the Committees page now!

What does a Block Captain do?

According to the Lewisville Police Department, a Block Captain’s Duties & Responsibilities consist of the following:

  • Participate in Quarterly Neighborhood Watch Committee meetings.
  • Prepare a list of persons on your block, including names, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses (we have a starting point for you).
  • Network with neighbors to help create awareness of crime watch related information and encourage all to keep an eye out for crime related activities.
  • Distribute crime prevention materials as needed.
  • IMMEDIATELY notify residents on your block of information on criminal activity.  The Communications Committee or Crime Watch Chairperson will obtain information of criminal activity from our NPO and email this to you on a monthly basis.

Children Playing – Slow Down!

In 2011, we worked with the Board and the City of Lewisville to get signs installed to encourage drivers to slow down in our community since we have many children here.  You’ll see these signs posted around.

Helpful Tips

Here are a few tips to help discourage would-be perpetrators:

  • Keep the garage doors closed if you are not out front or working in the garage. Even if you plan on being in the back yard for a short time, it is best to shut the garage door.
  • Lock your fence gate. It seems the entrance of choice for burglaries in many neighborhoods has been the back door. Locking the gate would require one to jump the fence which would arouse suspicion so a locked gate might deter the perpetrator.
  • Get to know your neighbors! Inform your neighbors if you will be out of town and the specific dates. Ask them to watch your home and if they notice anyone at your house to phone the police department. Provide your neighbors with your contact information while you are away so they can reach you if needed. Ask your neighbors to remove newspapers from your lawn while away. Newspapers left in the driveway indicate you might be out of town.
  • Make it a habit of setting your home alarm while you are away – even in the middle of the day. Consider adding glass break sensors to your alarm system for the downstairs windows and doors. Have your alarm system monitored.
  • If you believe you are witnessing a crime in progress, dial 911. Non-emergency Lewisville Police department numbers are listed below:
