Lakewood Crime Watch is a robust program provided by the Lakewood Neighborhood Association. The Crime Watch mission is to help provide residents a safe, secure environment through proactive efforts to reduce crime in the neighborhood. Please contact us with questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Regular Patrols by armed, off-duty Dallas Police officers in marked patrol cars deter cime and provide a quicker response time to 911 calls and alarms.

The program is funded entirely by annual subscriptions. The more residents who participate, the more hours officers can patrol the neighborhood.
