The only Neighborhood Watch group in Oswego County, Neighborhood Watch of Central Square and Hastings is an organization made up of neighbors from the Village of Central Square and the Town of Hastings, dedicated to improving the quality of life for the residents. The purpose of this organization is to eliminate crime from our neighborhoods and improve our quality of life.

Neighborhood Watch of Central Square and Hastings is a means of communications between neighbors and the town and village. It can bridge the communication gap between the neighbors and the police departments as well as with local officials.

Neighborhood Watch of Central Square and Hastings is an organized effort by concerned residents looking to help the local police department to protect people and their homes.

Neighbors know best their own specific problems, strengths, resources and needs.  They know the people that live in the neighborhood and those that do not.  Neighborhoods are made up of people who have the power to protect each other’s safety.  Police cannot fight crime they do not know about.  When alert citizens keep them informed, the Police are far more effective against crime—and citizens have better protection and safer neighborhoods.  By being the “eyes and ears” for the Police Department and reporting any suspicious circumstances to the Central Square Police Department, members of Neighborhood Watch actually increase their own safety!!

Since all residents of the area are considered members, everyone is invited to the meetings.
