It is the mission of the Placentia Neighborhood Watch Program, through the assistance and sponsorship of the Placentia Police Department, to actively seek, educate and involve city residents, neighborhoods and communities in "A Partnership in Crime Prevention" through the development of crime awareness, observation skills training and reporting.

Help Reduce Crime In Placentia
  • Do not leave valuables (GPS, Ipods, laptops, hand bags, cameras) in plain view.  Take these items with you or lock in trunk of your car.
  • Lock and secure all doors and windows even if you are gone for a few minutes.
  • Close and lock all doors and windows when you leave your home including garage door and gate to yard.
  • Evaluate home landscape which could create an opportunity for concealment.
  • Provide good lighting at all entrances.
  • Call the police if you see any suspicious activity.

City Graffiti Removal
Because some people live just outside Placentia and because you might spot graffiti in an adjoining city, we have also provided information for Fullerton and Yorba Linda.
  • Fullerton Graffiti Procedures: If you see graffiti vandalism in progress, call 9-1-1. Useful information would be where the vandalism is happening, a description of the individuals doing the graffiti, and a description of their vehicle.
  • Yorba Linda Graffiti Removal: Please submit an on-line request through City of Yorba Linda or call (714) 961-7160 to let staff know the location of the graffiti so that it can be removed.
