Welcome to the Oakhaven Crime Watch!

After taking a very unofficial survey of Crime Watch members and apartment community residents, the Crime Watch committee decided that a new format was in order. In addition to the monthly meetings, we have started a blog (this web site) and a Twitter account.

Posts to this blog can be made by any Crime Watch building captain. If you did not receive an email with your notification that the blog was up, please email oakhavencrimewatch @ (take out the spaces), and let us know so we can add you to the approved authors list.

Blog comments can be made by anyone, even anonymously, if, for example, you have trouble with one of your neighbors. All comments are moderated to make sure that they are relevant to the blog.

You can also contact us via Twitter! Follow @OakhavenCW to see what's happening. (Or just use the widget at the right!) Or send us an email: oakhavencrimewatch @ (remove the spaces around the @ sign).

We're looking for someone to make a Facebook page for us. If you would like to volunteer, please contact anyone in Crime Watch.

Thanks to everyone who contributed feedback and support. Let's keep Oakhaven a great place to live! (And congratulations to Carlos, building 1 captain; he just won the raffle at the Verizon party!)

  1. If you're thinking that illustration looks kind of familiar, Tenniel is the artist who illustrated Alice in Wonderland.

  2. How do we know who our building captain is? I live in building 15.

  3. Email the Crime Watch committee at to find out who your building captain is. You can use an anonymous email account to email us, or contact the Oakhaven main office to ask for your building captain to contact you (they have a signup form to be involved in Crime Watch).
