The WHOA Neighborhood Watch Committee Committee coordinates awareness and crime prevention programs for the Woodlake community.
The Neighborhood Watch Committee is directed by Area Coordinators and Block Captains. Please make sure that you know your Block Captain and that he/she knows how to contact you for routine or emergency matters.
The Neighborhood Watch organization promotes community safety and serves as a hub for communication regarding crime and suspicious behavior experienced in the Woodlake community.
Residents should report crime and suspicious behavior both to Durham Police (9-1-1) AND also to
When reporting and/or posting, it is imperative that we avoid descriptions that may appear as racial profiling. These WHOA Neighborhood Watch Reporting Guidelines provide information from the Neighbors for Racial Justice organization to prompt reflection and guide the objective sharing of information.
For a high-level incident or a pattern of incidents, a notice will be posted to the Woodlake Facebook group and an e-mail sent to those subscribed to the neighborhood listserv.
Neighborhood Watch encourages residents to know their neighbors and may host events, like an ice cream social or area BBQ, to facilitate interactions.
We also attempt to prevent crime by reminding residents of tips that reduce opportunity for criminal activity (ex. locking car doors, not leaving valuables in cars, letting neighbors know if you are leaving town, etc.)
