About Us

Our Mission: partnership. prevention. education.

The mission of Walla Walla Area Crime Watch is to assist local law enforcement, fire departments, and emergency management agencies in the area of crime prevention.

Walla Walla Area Crime Watch is an organization comprised of citizens with law enforcement, fire, and prevention specialists as advisors.

All funds received will continue the work of Crime Watch in supporting area crime prevention programs and activities which encourage community education with the purpose of reducing crime victimization and the fear of crime.
