Cabbagetown Neighborhood Watch


Mission Statement

The Cabbagetown Neighborhood Watch has been organized to promote the education of residents and businesses in areas of crime prevention and quality of life and to assist in the safeguarding of the community, its residents and their properties through voluntary activities including public information, problem solving and addressing Cabbagetown’s security problems and concerns.

Values Statement

Our Neighborhood Watch is a volunteer based, community oriented program committed to being the extra eyes and ears for our community and APD, watching out for each other, and networking to build strong neighborhood bonds.

  • We recognize and embrace the diversity of our community

  • We pledge to work as partners with law abiding neighbors and the APD

  • We depend on the community’s trust, confidence and support

  • We have a positive attitude and will look to accomplishments rather than obstacles

Responding to Suspicious Activity or Crime in Progress

“If You See Something, Say Something” is an initiative to encourage everyone in Atlanta to report any suspicious behavior in their neighborhood. APD repeatedly stressed that we should not hesitate to call 911 if we see something that doesn’t seem right. When in doubt, error on the side of calling 911 and allowing the dispatcher to triage your call.

After calling 911, please post a crime alert on and contact your block captain.

Nextdoor allows people to create a private website for their neighborhood. Neighbors can choose to see and respond to updates via email or directly on the website. The Cabbagetown Neighborhood Watch recommends Nextdoor as a way to facilitate communication between neighbors. The website has over 200 households participating, so they can:

  • Exchange information about crime and safety issues

  • Find neighbors in the directory

  • View a neighborhood map

  • Publicize local events

  • Share local recommendations (plumbers, auto mechanics, babysitters, etc.)

  • Ask for advice

  • Sell or give away household items
