Neighborhood Watch Groups
Elgin has 140 Neighborhood Watch Groups. Neighborhood Watch Groups are the eyes and the ears of the community. All groups have a Block Captain. Block Captains, along with neighbors, are encouraged to become actively involved in crime prevention efforts, as well as the important process of information exchange between neighbors and the police department. Block Captains receive periodic newsletters providing crime tips and updates; click here to view issues that were released.
