Crime and Safety Efforts
From Cascade County Watch to resident-led crime and safety projects, NeighborWorks Great Falls implements and supports a variety of crime and safety efforts. To create strong neighborhoods is to ensure we are all living in a safe community.
Business Watch is a crime prevention program that enlists the active participation of business and property owners, in cooperation with local law enforcement and to reduce crime in our downtown. The program gives downtown business and property owners, as well as their employees, practical hands-on education and solutions to potential crimes that may affect their businesses. Topics include: identifying potential shoplifters, creating a floor layout that helps to prevent shoplifting, and how to report crime and burglary. Business Watch meetings are held the second Tuesday of every other month at 5:30 p.m. at NeighborWorks Great Falls.
Through the dedicated commitment of the City of Great Falls Neighborhood Councils, the Great Falls Police Department, the Cascade County Sheriff's office, the Black Eagle Civic Club, and the Downtown Safety Coalition, we have made a significant impact on reducing neighborhood through the Neighborhood Watch. For education and training, Watchers are invited to participate in the Watch meetings, held at NeighborWorks, 509 - 1st Avenue South, Great Falls, MT, every other month. Contact the Neighborhood Watch Coordinator, Carol Bronson, for more information by calling (406) 761-5861.
