Horsham Town Watch is a volunteer division of the Horsham Police Department’s ChAT’s Community Policing program whose mission is to Observe, Evaluate, and Report activities in our community that may affect the safety and/ or well being of our residents. We are currently accepting applications from residents who are interested in helping to keep our community safe.
Town Watch volunteers assist the police department with regular patrols in our neighborhoods, with parking at community events such as high school dances, and other assignments as needed.
Our Town Watch volunteers patrol our neighborhoods on a scheduled basis. We are currently looking to increase the number of volunteers available to cover certain areas and expand the program into new neighborhoods.
Volunteers must be over 18 and pass a police criminal background check. Training will be provided. Town Watch is a great way to get to know your neighbors and provide a service to your community!
Volunteers with the Neighborhood Watch are provided with a written description of the duties they are expected to perform. ChATs volunteers shall only be used in accordance with the job description. Volunteers will not work without a written job description and shall not perform duties for which they are not properly trained.
Download an Application Here. You can mail the completed application to the PO Box on the form or drop it off at the Horsham Police Department at 1025 Horsham Rd.
If you have questions or would like additional information please contact the Horsham Town Watch Director, Tony Trotter.
Training that is made available to our volunteers includes CPR/1st Aid through the American Red Cross, and the Citizen's Police Academy presented annually by the Hatboro and Horsham Police Departments.
