SEE Program

If your home or business has a video surveillance system, you can register it with the Sheriff's Electronic Eye (SEE) Program. In the event a crime is reported in your vicinity, the sheriff's office can contact you to see if it was captured on video. Details here.

Neighborhood Watch

Neighborhood Watch groups offers citizens the ability to work with law enforcement to prevent crime. Neighbors look out for each other and act as the "eyes and ears of law enforcement."

While township residents are fortunate to live in an area of low crime, it's important to stay vigilant. Reporting crimes and suspicious activity provides deputies with valuable information that helps keep property crimes in check.

Neighborhood Watch groups typically meet monthly or bimonthly in someone's home. Deputies are available to attend meetings where they can offer updates on neighborhood crime, explain services offered by the sheriff's office, or provide crime prevention information.

If you'd like to participate in a Neighborhood Watch or start a new group for your neighborhood, contact Deputy Brian Burke, community education officer, at 432-2758.

Walker WatchWalker Watch Program

No one knows a neighborhood better than the people who live, walk and run there. Walkers and runners can help maintain safe neighborhoods by keeping their eyes and ears open for anything suspicious. Check here for pointers about what to look for and how to respond, or contact Deputy Brian Burke at 433-2758 or burkeb@mcohiosheriff.org.

The goal is to build working relationships with township businesses and collect their contact information so that businesses and deputies can work together to combat crime.

Sharing information is useful for alerting businesses about crimes as well as calling on them for assistance.Businesses who would like to be involved in the Business Watch project can call Deputy Brian Burke, community education officer, at 432-2758..
