Our Greatest Crime Fighting Tool is YOU!

Prescott Valley Police Department wants to make our citizens aware of a local program designed to make our communities safer.  A Neighborhood Block Watch program is a group of people living in the same area who want to make their neighborhood safer by working together and in conjunction with local law enforcement to reduce crime and improve their quality of life.  The idea is that neighbors will look out for one another and report suspicious or problematic issues to the police. One of the best things about living in Prescott Valley is the relationship our department has with our community.  We can’t be everywhere, but if we know where there is a problem, we can work with our citizens to find a solution. This program has been turning citizens into crime-fighting superheroes since 1972. 

The newest component of the modern Neighborhood Block Watch program is the Virtual Block Watch program, where neighbors can register the location of their external security cameras with the police. If a crime occurs where a camera just might have information to assist the police, detectives will contact the camera owner and ask the owner to review the footage in that time frame. 

When we work together, we can accomplish great things to keep our community safe. For further information on the Neighborhood Block Watch and Virtual Block Watch programs, please call the PVPD Block Watch Coordinator Evelyn Sharman at 928-772-5113 or email at External cameras can be registered at

Prescott Valley Police Department can be contacted at (928) 772-9267 for non-emergencies, 911 for emergencies. Yavapai Silent witness is 1-800-932-3232. IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING!
