Start a Neighborhood Watch on Your Block

Fight crime in your block: consider starting a Neighborhood Watch on your block.  This is one of the best ways to reduce crime and get to know your neighbors at the same time.  Contact LHNA and we will assist you in starting a Neighborhood Watch in conjunction with the Albuquerque Police Department.  Once you have set up your Neighborhood Watch Ladera Heights Neighborhood Association will pay for the Neighborhood Watch signs.  Take an active role in creating a safer more secure neighborhood by organizing a Neighborhood Watch on your block.
