Centerville Police Department

The Centerville Police Department provides quality policing services according to the highest standards of professional conduct and ethics. We’re committed to protecting and serving our city’s needs. By maintaining strong community partnerships, we address crime and public safety concerns to improve the quality of life for the residential and business communities of Centerville.

Neighborhood Watch Program

Our policing philosophy combines traditional law enforcement activities with local community partnerships. The most successful example of this philosophy is the Neighborhood Watch program. This crime prevention program educates citizens on how to identify and report suspicious activity in their neighborhoods to local law enforcement.

Neighborhood Watch programs are proven to:

  • Unite the community to take control of their neighborhood
  • Promote increased quality of life
  • Reduce crime rates

Call (478) 953-4222 to learn more about our Neighborhood Watch program call.
