Community Alert Program (C.A.P.)
The Community Alert Program “C.A.P” is an unique citywide initiative implemented in August of 2012. The Community Alert Program uses various forms of communication to notify residents of important information and criminal activity in their neighborhoods so they can work together with the Syracuse Police Department to “C.A.P” crime before it occurs. C.A.P works to unite all Neighborhood Watch Groups throughout Syracuse so we can build stronger communities and a better city.
How C.A.P. Works
Members from active Neighborhood Watch Groups can request their contact information be added to the C.A.P database.

Once a member’s information is entered into the citywide database it can be sorted and used to notify one or several communities/watch groups.

In the event NWGS and/or the Syracuse Police Department deems it necessary to share crime related information with the community notifications will be made.

Once notified, residents can assist the Syracuse Police by becoming the “Eyes and Ears” of their community and reporting all suspicious and criminal activity to 911.
Note: Information will not be shared and only used to disseminate Neighborhood Watch and SPD information
