The American Canyon Police Department believes in the philosophy of Community Policing. It takes the cooperation of both the residents and the Police Department to ensure that we live and work in a safe community. Officer Jeff Scott is our Community Resource Officer, who is responsible for working with the citizens in our neighborhoods coordinating Neighborhood Watch, and proactive crime prevention programs. All of our Officers have the training and knowledge to assist you in any concerns you have regarding your neighborhood or community.
If you have any questions regarding your neighborhood and would like to talk to Officer Scott, contact him at (707) 551-0600
YOU can help keep American Canyon a great place to live, work, and play! It doesn’t matter how much or little time you have to spare. Staying informed about what’s happening in the community, getting to know your neighbors, and having access to great resources is all you need.
We hold bimonthly Citywide Neighborhood Watch meetings which include training on various topics related to crime prevention. Our next meeting is Wednesday, March 20, 2019, at 6 PM, Gadwall Park (161 Gadwall Street). Everyone is welcome to come, you don't have to live in that specific neighborhood.
