Safety & Security

Looking out for each other, Helping ensure the safety and security of our families, communities, and property.

The Aurora Police Department supports citizen efforts to coordinate Neighborhood Watch programs.  Community volunteers, with the help of the Aurora Police Department and our PAR (Police Area Representative) Officer, run this program.  The volunteers coordinate activities in their areas, arrange meetings, picnics and other social gatherings, where they introduce crime prevention tips and safety training for the residents.

Neighborhood Watch is a group of citizens with the goal of taking an active roll in making their community healthy and crime-free by working with law enforcement and other city resources. By building a problem-solving network that encourages citizens to form a bond to maintain their neighborhoods, both as a deterrent to crime and a way to make the neighborhood a good place to live, residents solve their own problems. This is the basis of a strong community-policing program. A Neighborhood Watch program is built through neighbors who identify community concerns and criminal activity and who work toward improving the quality of life in the community.

The program operates through a communication chain that includes the Police Area Representatives (PAR Officers), our Head Area Coordinator, the Area Coordinators, block Captains and Residents.

Our Neighborhood Watch area (PAR Areas 26 & 27) represents/consists of many communities in the South East Aurora area, and we are open to accepting additional communities if we can find sufficient support and interested community members. Our SEANW (South East Aurora Neighborhood Watch) has a close relationship with the Aurora Police Department and it’s supporting agencies and personnel. We appreciate all the support we get from the men and women of the Police Department and the city’s municipal support staff. The most visible support that the city/APD provides are the PAR officers - Uniquely qualified and dedicated to working with citizen groups such as our Neighborhood Watch, we couldn’t help protect our communities and residents without their assistance.

Officer Eric Trap is the PAR officer for Area 26 (north of E. Arapahoe Rd.)

Officer Shane Ellison is the PAR officer for Area 27 (south of E. Arapahoe Rd.)

PAR Areas for the rest of Aurora - View annotated map online.

Note: All of Southshore community is considered to be in Area 26 for PAR administration.

Note: All of Tallyn’s Reach community is considered to be in Area 27 for PAR administration.
