Community Watch Programs

Prince William County is a safe place to live and work. We offer several programs including Neighborhood Watch, Business Watch, Worship Watch, and Fleet Watch.

Neighbors commit to keeping their eyes and ears open as they go about their daily business, or they can organize patrols to monitor their neighborhoods. Have a question? Complete this Neighborhood Watch Inquiry form.
