To continue enhancing the quality of life in our neighborhoods, and as part of our 2020-2023 Strategic Plan, we plan to increase collaborative efforts within neighborhoods. This includes integrating in-person neighborhood watch meetings by utilizing sworn and professional staff. While we are not quite ready to re-launch this program, we will keep this page updated with information as we get closer to an official launch.
If you and your neighbors are interested in joining our Neighborhood Watch Program, please share your contact information with so we can be sure to notify you when we launch.
Virtual Neighborhood Watch Program through Nextdoor:
Nextdoor.com was specifically designed to make neighbors feel comfortable sharing information with one another in order to get to know each other, ask questions, exchange local advice, and help build stronger communities.
Neighborhoods establish and self-manage their own Nextdoor website. Information shared on each Nextdoor site is only visible to members who live in the neighborhood and who have verified their address. Currently, Ventura has been mapped into 41 different neighborhoods which range in size from 60 to 1500 households. We believe a healthier and more engaged city creates stronger communities.
Households can also opt-in to receive alerts and information shared by the Ventura Police Department.
Note of importance- Any information shared on Nextdoor cannot be viewed, accessed, or shared by government agencies, including VPD. If you are aware of suspicious activity or conversations occurring online, please take a screenshot of the postings and report by calling our 24/7 non-emergency line at 805-650-8010.
If you have questions about the Nextdoor, how to get started, or need technical support, please email email@example.com.
