Parkersburg and Wood County Neighborhood Watch

Neighborhood Watch Organization

This page provides information about the organizational structure of the Neighborhood Watch Co-op and specific information about the individual Watch Groups in various neighborhoods throughout Parkersburg and Wood County.

The Co-op President coordinates directly with the Uniformed Division Commander of the Parkersburg Police Department and with the Wood County Sheriff, and has the overall responsibility to coordinate and support the efforts of the individual Watch Groups. As the organization continues to grow, there will eventually be assigned Area Coordinators for the various geographical areas of the city and county, ideally with each Coordinator responsible to oversee five to seven Watch Groups.

A Watch Group is a group of concerned citizens in a small geographic region of a community (usually not more than two or three blocks) who are organized, committed, informed, and structured in a hierarchy of Watch Captains, Co-Captains, Lieutenants, and Watchers (members). Within each Watch Group, the Captain is assisted by one or more Co-Captains so that each Co-Captain is responsible to oversee no more than five to seven Watchers. If a Watch Group is sufficiently large, Lieutenants need to be assigned so that no individual is responsible for more that five to seven individuals.
