Neighborhood Watch Program

Designed by the Dublin Police, this program allows you and your neighbors to help prevent and reduce crime in your neighborhood.

A Neighborhood Watch group is an association of neighbors who look out for each other’s families and property, alert the police to any suspicious activities and work together to make their community a safer place to live.

Residents interested in forming a Neighborhood Watch group in their subdivisions can get started by contacting the Dublin Police at 614.410.4800, or by emailing Sgt. Jake Stoll jstoll@dublin.oh.us.

Here are a few extra steps you can take to start organizing your Neighborhood Watch group:

  • Host a neighborhood meeting to gauge neighbors’ interest and begin to identify neighborhood issues that need to be addressed.
  • Invite a Dublin Police officer to attend this meeting to discuss details of the program and answer any questions.
  • Select block captain volunteers who will be responsible for relaying information to members on their block, keeping up-to-date information and making efforts to involve everyone.
  • Elect a chairperson to serve as liaison with the Police and relay information about meetings and crime incidents to block captains.
  • Establish a regular means of communicating with Watch members.

2022 GOALS 

  • Enhance and demonstrate our ability to effectively address issues of significant community concern 
  • This goal has led to the creation of the Chief’s Advisory Committee, which meets with Chief of Police Justin Páez, as well as DPD executive staff, to provide valued advice, perspective, recommendations and feedback on significant community-police relations issues. The group includes community members in an open dialogue about policing practices.

  • The department has also been increasingly engaged in combating human trafficking in the Dublin community based on this goal. 

Standards

The Dublin Police Department has been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA)  since 1990. The department uses the CALEA process as a guide to ensure the overall quality of operations. The process helps the agency ensure that quality and comprehensive policies are in place, that appropriate reports are compiled to assist leadership in decision-making, and that regular quality checks are conducted on agency operations.  

Police continually use the standards provided by CALEA to enhance public safety services for the city. The accreditation process consists of three major categories: statistical and annual reporting, annual file review, and on-site assessment. 

The Dublin Police received its tenth reaccreditation in 2021. There are 460 standards in law enforcement accreditation, and the Dublin Police Department is compliant with 99% of the applicable standards. On-site compliance accreditation occurs every four years. 

There is also an annual review of the department’s CALEA standards by a CALEA Compliance Service Member, including a portion where the community can participate. 

The Dublin Police Department consists of multiple work units that are focused on dedicated service and commitment to protecting life, liberty and property. 

Patrol (District Officers) 

Police officers are assigned to different zones throughout the Dublin community to ensure safety coverage by an officer. 

Community Education Unit  

This section of the police department aims to educate the public and offer protection inside the Dublin City Schools buildings.  

School Resource Officers 

School Resource Officers, or SROs, work to bridge the gap between police officers and students, helping to

  • and develop an atmosphere conducive to learning.
