The Crime Prevention Unit has participated in Celebrate Davis, National Night Out, Davis Neighbor’s Night Out, Adopt-A-Park, Fall Patrol and various safety presentations.
Davis Police Department’s Neighborhood Watch program is a crime reduction program where citizens work together with law enforcement to combat and prevent crime in their neighborhoods.

Davis PD provides tools and annual training to all multi-housing stakeholders in an effort to assist them in crime issues that are unique to shared properties. To date, Davis PD has 41 Crime Free Multi-Housing participants. For more information on the Crime Free Multi-Housing program, please click here.
