Lincoln Hills has a very active Neighborhood Watch program organized by mail box stations. There are 6,784 houses organized in 75 Villages (including A, B, C, D and E designations) and 594 mail box stations. Communication is managed by approximately 93 Village Coordinators and more than 753 mail box Captains.
Neighborhood Watch is a national program under which neighbors organize to prevent crime in their neighborhood and to increase personal safety. Neighborhood Watch increases personal safety awareness, strengthens neighborhood ties and provides an opportunity to get to know your neighbors.
Residents are organized into "Watch Stations" which include all residents who receive their mail at the same mail box station. The Mail Box Captain passes on security and crime-related information to those residents in their village and periodically arranges meetings to discuss safety and security measures concerning them. This also helps the neighbors to become better acquainted with each other, which in turn creates a safer place to live. Each member of the mail box station receives a copy of the Resident Contact Information Form which includes the names, addresses, phone numbers, names of pets and emergency contacts. This form is only distributed to members of the mail box station and the Village Coordinator. This information has proven to be an invaluable resource to neighbors and to the Lincoln Police Department when a security or other problem has arisen and the resident was away from home. Participation in Neighborhood Watch is optional.
