Parkersburg and Wood County Neighborhood Watch

Contact Us

There are presently 32 active Watch Groups and over 300 Neighborhood Watch members in the city of Parkersburg and surrounding unincorporated areas of Wood County. These members truly represent a cross-section of our community, from students to retirees and everywhere in between. Our goal for our Neighborhood Watch program is to achieve the participation of 10% of the county's total adult population, matching the national average.
