NW PNJ Newspaper Article

The Pensacola News Journal featured Neighborhood Watch groups in Escambia County in its front page article on 7/30/2017.

The article focuses on neighborhood patrols, but this is something the Sheriff's Office no longer recommends. In fact, they highly discourage it, because it is too easy for a "vigilante" mentality to creep in over time. Patrols may be tempted to confront suspicious activity and unnecessarily expose themselves to danger. 

Instead of patrols, our Lake Charlene NW focuses on individual neighbors practicing

  • situational awareness with the homes around them and promptly reporting any suspicious activity to the Sheriff's Office dispatch, 436-9620.
  • Watch Orders, where we ask the Sheriff's Office to patrol our homes when we will be away overnight (a free service). 
  • walking the dog, walking, and jogging: enjoying the outdoors while looking for any suspicious activity in the neighborhood and promptly reporting it.

Watch Orders

ECSO Watch Orders

The Sheriff's Office wants us to place a watch order on our homes whenever we will be out of town for 2 or more days.  

  • Deputies patrol daily
  • No cost to you or LCHA
  • Call ECSO at 436-9620


When we all do this, we'll have patrols in our neighborhood everyday of the year. Your home and our whole neighborhood will be safer!
