The North Valley Community Watch was formed as a way to organize the citizens of the entire North Valley area of Josephine County who are concerned about their safety. The NVCW encompasses a broader area than a typical neighborhood watch program which may only encompass a few residences in a localized area. The NVCW program works to support the individual neighborhood watch groups of our area and encourages and facilitates communication between the groups and the NVCW. We do this through emails and regular general meetings between group members. NVCW members also work to set up neighborhood watch programs in specific areas. In doing so, we hope to show these individual neighborhood watch groups the benefits of being associated with the NVCW program. The NVCW also provides a responder service designated to assist our members with potential problems law enforcement is unable to address.
