Neighborhood Watch Activities: It is the belief that Neighborhood Safety has to start with neighbors knowing each other and beginning to take pride in their neighborhood and communicating with each other. To this end we work with neighborhoods in the City to help the residents engage each other. This often starts with "Block Parties" a very good way to begging "Social Capital" (The central premise of social capital is that social networks have value. Social capital refers to the collective value of all "social networks" [who people know] and the inclinations that arise from these networks to do things for each other ["norms of reciprocity"].)

Multi Family Crime Prevention Program:
A report was given at the March 14 meeting of the San Diego City Council's Public Safety and Neighborhood Services Committee regarding the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program (CFMHP). A pilot program was initiated in the San Diego Police Department's Southeastern, Mid City and Central Divisions at three multi-family properties. In each case during a six month period, calls for police service to each specific location were reduced. The report went on to say that stakeholders agreed to support expanding the CFMHP city-wide and keeping the program strictly voluntary. The ordinance will be reviewed again within 18 months.
By implementing the principles of the CFMHP, property owners and managers can reduce the likelihood of crime in the community and the number of visitors who come to the property with criminal intent. The San Diego Police Department provides the Landlord Training Program, designed to promote positive and responsible partnerships between landlords, tenants and San Diego Police.
