Community Watch

Program Start and Purpose

Established in 1995, the Community Watch Program is an organization sponsored by Nags Head's Police Department and maintained by town residents. The purpose of the Community Watch is to have town residents assist the police by acting as another set of "eyes and ears" for the department.


Community Watch holds meetings the second Tuesday of every month at 6 p.m. in the Town of Nags Head Municipal Complex. Please call the Police Department at 252-441-6386 for meeting times. At the meetings, Community Watch members speak with each other and with police officers about concerns and problems within their neighborhoods.

Watch Areas and Captains

Nags Head is divided into several community watch areas, each represented by a resident "Community Watch Captain" and a police officer assigned to that area. This officer is the neighborhood's first contact for any questions, concerns or problems a resident may have.
