Neighborhood Beat Meetings

Release date: 5/31/2013

Over the past month, the Streamwood Police Department has conducted four meetings at the police department explaining a new initiative to better inform Streamwood residents about current crime trends, provide safety information, and introduce them to the Patrol Sergeant assigned to the area in which they reside
.
The new program, Beat Meetings, will expand our current Neighborhood Watch efforts to include those residents not already in an established Neighborhood Watch Group.  Over the next few months, a meeting will be held at the police department for the area in which a resident lives. A Patrol Sergeant is assigned to each beat. They are responsible for gathering crime and traffic complaint information and then creating a plan to fight it.

Each month, the Beat Sergeant will speak about topics such as:

  • Reducing your chances of becoming a victim
  • Training to become a good observer
  • How to determine what is suspicious in nature
  • When you should call 911
  • Crime trends in your community
  • Crime prevention tips
