Laurel Oaks Neighborhood Association
APD: Region 2, ADAM District 3
9-1-1 is only to be used in emergency situations. An emergency is any situation that requires immediate assistance from the police, the fire department or an ambulance.
(If you are ever in doubt of whether a situation is an emergency you should call 9-1-1. It's better to be safe and let the 9-1-1 call taker determine if you need emergency assistance.)
Call 3-1-1 to report any type of crime where there is no immediate threat to life or property.

Getting involved in the Watch is easy – Be A.L.E.R.T. and do the ‘Five’.
I know who my neighbors and who their kids are. I know what cars belong on my street.
My house is well lit at night. I have installed motion detectors or dusk to dawn lights in areas where people may walk.
I am ready for a crisis and keep neighbors phone numbers handy, just in case. I know neighbors’ kids would come to my house for help. I could tell the firefighters how many pets and kids to save if there was a fire on my street.
I call 311 and 911 when I see a potential issue. I ask for an incident number and report it to the Watch so it can be recorded. I bring bigger issues to my Neighborhood Association so the community is aware of what is happening.
I keep my street and my home neat. I trim my bushes and trees so windows and doors can be seen. I keep my drive and porch free of clutter. I pick up trash on my street, handle graffiti, and pitch in to help other neighbors who need a hand. I want criminals to see that my street is loved and their activities will not be tolerated!
