Deepwell Estates Is A Safe Neighborhood
Neighborhood Watch Program works with Palm Springs Police Department
The Deepwell Neighborhood Watch program musters the power of residents to provide block-level security through a program of awareness, communicating and education. It is an organized program that helps develop everyone's power of observation and fosters mutual assistance and communication among neighbors. Deepwell Estates has one of the most active and engaged Neighborhood Watch groups in Palm Springs thanks to the hard work of our dedicated team of neighborhood captains. The program was led for many years by Neighborhood Watch Chair Jim King, who recently retired from the position. Through the years, Neighborhood Watch has used the “extra eyes and ears” approach to create a proactive, community-oriented program. Working together in conjunction with law enforcement. empowers residents to be active in emergency preparedness. Our Neighborhood Watch program has resulted in crime reduction, a better quality of life, a greater sense of security, helps build community pride and unity in Deepwell.
Neighborhood Watch Program And You!
Deepwell Estates Neighborhood Organization has organized a group of neighbors who are the ever watchful “eyes and ears” of Deepwell Estates Neighborhood Watch program. Our neighborhood watch team includes 20 volunteer Block Captains as well as many dog walkers, bikers, joggers, and walkers. Every street has at least two Block Captains working with residents on those streets. We encourage our residents to wear brightly colored vests and hats while enjoying our neighborhood. Wearing these vests and hats provides great visibility, allowing people to be seen during both daylight and nighttime. Our goal is to keep an eye out for any activity or situation that looks suspicious or out of place.

We Are All On The Team
Everyone in Deepwell can help deter crime. Our neighborhood watch team includes 20 volunteer Block Captains as well as dog walkers, bikers, joggers, and walkers. Every street has at least two Block Captains working with residents on those streets. We are always looking for neighbors to join our team.
Neighborhood Watch Signs
Our neighborhood has worked with the Palm Springs Police Department to develop Neighborhood Watch signs in both English and Spanish. These signs are prominently displayed throughout the neighborhood. To further protect our residences we provide stickers to place on residents' doors, windows and mailboxes. These proactive measures help to keep Deepwell's crime level to near zero.
Neighborhood Video Team
Many Deepwell Estates residents have volunteered to be members of our Video team. Register the location of your home or business security cameras through the chair of Deepwell Estate Neighborhood Watch Team by completing our Deepwell Video Team Application form. When an incident is captured on video, the video footage is shared with the Chair of Deepwell Estates Neighborhood Watch and sent to our local law enforcement agency.
