Salida Town Watch

Neighborhood Watch and Town Watch programs are active in Salida.


Town Watch members are made up from Neighborhood Watch Coordinators, Street Captains, Law Enforcement, and anyone else who would like to be involved. Salida Town Watch is fairly unique as we are the only community in our County to have such a program.

The Town Watch was created by a committee of concerned Salida residents who were active in their Neighborhood Watch programs. It provided a community forum directly with Law enforcement to address crime issues and learn how to be more aware of crime in our neighborhoods. Initially the program was primarily for Neighborhood Watch Tract Coordinators from all over Salida to come together and share information about events in their areas. It was a way to inform the rest of the community about issues and to get support and answers directly from law enforcement.

Since then, it has evolved to include people who may not have an active Neighborhood Watch program, but are wanting to be involved in their community. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Sheriff's Substation for more information.

If you are interested in starting or re-activating the Neighborhood Watch program in your area, please call:
Deputy Richard Gonzales Salida Sheriff's Sub Station: 543-7355


All Street Captains and Neighborhood Watch coordinators are
encouraged to attend Town Watch meetings.


National Night Out is in August , is your neighborhood planning an event? If so contact the Stanislaus County Sheriff's office at 543-7355 and let them know. The Sheriff's Dept. and CHP make appearances at such neighborhood events and you can have them come to yours! Here's some pictures from one NNO we had a few years ago. It's a lot of fun and a great way to get to know your neighbors while giving crime a "going away" party!

Here's something we hope to see more of, web cams keeping a watchful eye on our neighborhoods via the Internet!
