Ted Thompson is our MVCA Neighborhood Watch coordinator.
The MVCA Neighborhood Watch Program is a visible, vibrant community service, recognized by the Fairfax County Police as one of the “best and most active” in the County.
In partnership with the Fairfax County Police Department, Mount Vernon District Station, the purpose of the MVCA Neighborhood Watch is, simply put, to use citizen observers to deter crime in our neighborhood by keeping a watchful eye on our neighbor’s homes and reporting to the police any noted suspicious activities or crimes to the police. Our physical patrols, at varying times at least once a day, serve as a visible notice to would-be criminals and others that residents are concerned about crime. We will call the police when we detect unusual or suspicious activity and we take an active part in protecting our homes.
We have recently lost several neighborhood watch participants through attrition and moves out of the area. While we still have a dedicated team where the participants are sanding a one-week “watch,” conducting patrols of the neighborhood approximately once every 14 weeks, we are actively seeking to expand the team with new volunteers to keep the program strong.
We encourage you to become involved as a member of this important volunteer action team.
Please call Ted Thompson to learn more and to join our dedicated team. 703-780-1972 (H), or contact Ted at the dedicated neighborhood watch email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
