Neighborhood Safety
We have had a string of break-ins lately that remind us that no neighborhood is immune to

crime. If everyone is watching out for each other, then we can build up our sense of community

and help each other out. Here are a few reminders and recommendations for everyone in the


  1. Work together with your neighbors; get to know who lives around you.
  2. Watch for and report suspicious or unusual behavior. Remember that we are not vigilantes, so don’t assume the role of police yourself.
  3. Physical conditions like abandoned cars or dark and overgrown lots contribute to crime. Clean up your yard, or help your neighbors to clean up their yards, and turn on outdoor lights at night.
  4. Lock up your doors, windows, and cars and set your home alarm if you have it.
  5. If your older children are home alone, make sure your alarm is set and the doors and windows are locked. Make sure they have a landline to use in the event of an emergency.
  6. Help your children to learn important phone numbers like your work or cell phone numbers. Make sure they know to call 408-277-8911 from their cell or 911 from a landline first before calling Mom, even. The Police can’t respond if they don’t get a call.
  7. Choose a safe house nearby for your children to go to if they need help.
  8. Know your children’s friends and encourage your older children to get involved in positive school and community activities.

Meetings can be organized for specific streets in the Rancho Santa Teresa Swim & Racquet Club area. Neighborhood watch meetings are organized by street. If your street is not being included, then you can organize your own meeting by calling Sonia Azevedo, Crime Prevention Specialist at 408-277-4133 or but you need a minimum of 10 people. If your meeting is going to be held at the Club please call Alana Martinez at 408-277-5758 for scheduling. Source:
