Chesapeake Beach Neighborhood Watch (CBNW)

– Together we are making Chesapeake Beach a safer place to live and work! –

The Chesapeake Beach Neighborhood Watch (CBNW) program is certified by the Virginia Beach Police Department and registered with the National Sheriffs’ Association’s USA onWatch.

  • Neighborhood Watch is not the formation of  Vigilante Groups!
  • Neighborhood Watch is a return to the “old-fashioned” days when neighbors looked out for one another and communicated with police.
  • Neighborhood Watch helps a community become stronger and more unified.
  • Neighborhood Watch generates a concern of neighbors for each other. For instance, during bad weather, neighbors can check on other neighbors.
  • Neighborhood Watch lets neighbors know that someone will be there in case of a personal crisis such as a fire, flood, or crime.
  • The Chesapeake Beach Neighborhood Watch is sponsored by the Chesapeake Beach Civic League.
  • The Chesapeake Beach Neighborhood Watch (CBNW) program is certified by the Virginia Beach Police Department and registered with the National Sheriffs’ Association’s USAonWatch.
  • Real-time alerts of crimes and suspicious activities being committed in our neighborhood can be found on Nextdoor.com.

Participating in Neighborhood Watch is as easy as staying in the communication link and keeping alert for suspicious behavior in the neighborhood:  Watch & Listen, and when something seems wrong Ask & Act.

Join CBNW  by contacting the coordinator at cxbneighborhoodwatch@gmail.com.   You do NOT have to own a home in Chic’s Beach to be able to join;  all residents of Chic’s Beach are eligible to participate in the CBNW program.  You, also, do NOT have to be a member of the civic league to join the CBNW, and CBCL members are NOT automatically enrolled in the CBNW. Live in an apartment? Ask your landlord about “Apartment Watch”.

In talking to WTKR-TV3 about a spike in crime earlier this year, Virginia Beach Police Chief James A. Cervera stressed the need for city residents to get involved to help the police reduce crime.  Citizens need to be vigilant and communicate with the police and their neighbors.

The latest crimes in our community are posted on the VB Electronic Police Reports Online.

The Chesapeake Beach Neighborhood Watch is sponsored by the Chesapeake Beach Civic League.
