I want to start or join a neighborhood watch.
To begin a neighborhood watch group, form a small planning committee of neighbors to discuss the needs of your community, gauge the level of interest, and identify potential problems.  You will also need to decide on a date and place for an initial neighborhood watch meeting. 

If your group is interested in having a member of the Montclair Police Department attend either the first or a subsequent meeting and speak to the group about a particular topic of concern, you can make arrangements for this by calling the Montclair Police Department at (909) 621-4771. For more information and educational materials related to starting a Neighborhood Watch or to register your Neighborhood Watch in the National Neighborhood Watch Database, click on to the following link:

I know about an illegal pay phone and don't know what to do.
Contact the Police Department at (909) 621-4771.

I want to get the crime statistics for the area I'm moving to.
There are two options for obtaining information about calls for service and statistics for specific areas:

The Police Department's daily log of calls for service for the past 60 days is available for review during normal business hours at 4870 Arrow Highway.  Although it does not provide statistical data, it provides an itemized listing of the calls for service, including date, time, location, nature of call for service, and disposition. 

Requests for crime statistic searches for specific areas and for specific crimes may be made in writing.  Statistics or call for service history for a specific address are not available.  The cost for the crime statistic search is $25 per hour.  Mail your request with a check or money order for $25 to Montclair Police Department, P.O. Box 2308, Montclair, CA  91763.  Please include a contact telephone number, your mailing address where the results should be sent, and the specifics of your requested search (i.e., specific crime(s) of interest, area of interest by street names and hundred blocks, and date range).  Should the search require over one hour, you will be notified of the additional cost.  The results will be mailed.

Where is the Police Department?
The Montclair Police Department is located at 4870 Arrow Highway, at the northwest corner of Arrow Highway and Monte Vista Avenue.
