Neighborhood Watch

The Gurnee Police Department works closely with Neighborhood Watch groups as part of efforts aimed at safety and crime prevention. This page has been added as a starting point for information tailored to Neighborhood Watch participants.

There are currently 12 neighborhood watch groups in the village. Each group meets at least twice a year with their respective crime prevention officer. To see if you’re within a neighborhood watch group, or to start one in your area, please contact our Crime Prevention Unit at 847-599-7080.

Visit the Neighborhood Watch Schedule page to see when your watch group meets.

Residents may elect to receive email alerts from the police department. Please contact the Crime Prevention Unit at 847-599-7080 to sign up. Alternately, you can email a request to receive alerts to toma@police.gurnee.il.us. Please include your name, home or business address, telephone number, and email address. This service is predominantly available to Village of Gurnee residents and business owners. Requests from persons or entities outside the village will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
