The Neighborhood Watch is
a group of residents organized to provide extra eyes in the community to combat
The primary positions in our structure consist of
"Contact" and "Patrol" members. The Contact
members are volunteers willing to speak with Mallard Bay residents
who may want someone to contact with general questions or observations
regarding neighborhood safety and the Watch Program. The Patrol
members are our feet, eyes and ears on the streets. Most of these
folks are the dog walkers, exercisers, and others who regularly find
themselves out and about in the community during the course of
Detective Todd Jones, our Liaison with the Sheriff's
Office, may be contacted directly by property owners regarding having
your home added to a Sheriff's patrol list during your away periods such
as vacations, business travel, or emergency absences.
If a crime in progress or suspicious activity is
observed, immediately contact the Northumberland Sheriff's
Office (call 911) so that they can provide timely and appropriate
response. Don't second guess your first instinct if you suspect
something is amiss. Our Law Enforcement Officers would much rather
respond to a call and have no issue than respond after the fact to a
situation where being on the scene earlier may have changed the outcome.
The Sheriff's office requests that homeowners who expect
to leave their homes vacant for extended periods over the winter (e.g.
holiday vacations, seasonal relocation or unexpected situations) contact
the Sheriff's Office directly through Detective Todd Jones by phone
at 804-724-0589 or by email at email@example.com
so that special emphasis can be placed on patrolling those homes while
they're unoccupied. The Sheriff's Office stresses that
participation by homeowners in this program is strictly voluntary.
Don't miss out on this opportunity to provide added
security for your possessions and added peace of mind for yourself when
you're miles away from the community.
