PVE Neighborhood Watch is a community participation program committed to educating our residents on crime prevention and disaster preparedness. The Palos Verdes Estates Police Department maintains a strong partnership with the Neighborhood Watch program working together to increase the quality of life and safety within our neighborhoods.
Our Neighborhood Watch program is divided into six areas: Malaga Cove, Valmonte, Montemalaga, Lunada Bay West, Lunada Bay South and Lunada Bat East. Each of these areas is represented by an Area Coordinator who shares valuable information down to the level of Block Captain, and from there, information flows out to the residents.
The objectives of Neighborhood Watch are simple:
- To assist in the education of crime prevention by reducing the opportunities for crime.
- To enhance police/community partnerships by promoting effective two-way communication (prompt reporting of suspicious and criminal activity).
- To educate and assist the community in emergency preparedness in how to survive in a disaster. (see website for Disaster District Plan)
To encourage all residents to have Emergency Survival Kits (backpacks) on hand at home, school, work and in the car. Backpacks can be purchased at City Hall.
