This program includes two classes designed to support the Neighborhood Watch
Program. While the program is actually administered by the Layton Community
Action Council, the Layton Police Department is responsible for providing
initial training. The first class is all about getting started in a
Neighborhood Watch Program. It focuses on observation skills and tips for
detecting suspicious activity. The second class is designed for groups that are
ready to branch out into a mobile neighborhood watch system. This class builds
on the start up course, but it also discusses qualifications and requirements,
laws, and area crime statistics. When you contact the Community Resource
Division for information on starting a neighborhood watch group, we will put
you in touch with the appropriate coordinator and they will work with you to
set up a training date.

Internet Safety Presentations
These presentations are age-appropriate and are tailored to the attention
span and interest of the audience. Young children (Grades K-2) are introduced
to the presence of online dangers and the importance of using the Internet
with a trusted adult. Older children (Grades 3-6) learn what to watch out
for online and how to avoid these dangers. Teens (Middle and High School)
are shown the consequences of risky Internet behavior. Adults are taught
basic Internet concepts and shown how easy it is for someone to find personal
information about their children. They will also receive resources for
communicating with children and teenagers about Internet concerns in a positive manner.
Child Identification Kits
The Child ID Kits contain personal information as well as a current image and
fingerprints for your child. A digital image is taken and fingerprints are
scanned into a computer to produce the final product. The images and the fingerprints
taken are NOT kept on file at the Police Department. Once the information is printed
the record is erased. The printout of your child’s information should be kept in a
safe place and updated yearly. To find out when the next child identification event
will be held, contact the Layton Police Department at 801-336-3488.
