Skybrook Neighborhood Watch
Skybrook is part of the National Neighborhood Watch program to help keep our community a safe and secure home for our residents. Not only does neighborhood watch allow all of us to help in the fight against crime, it is also an opportunity for Skybrook residents to bond through service. Started in 1972, this program is proven to be highly effective in deterring crime, raising awareness and providing accurate information regarding crime in close proximity to our neighborhood.

What Does a Neighborhood Watch Do?
A Neighborhood Watch is neighbors helping neighbors. They are extra eyes and ears for reporting crime and helping keep our neighborhood safe. Members meet their neighbors, learn how to make their homes more secure, watch out for each other, and report activity that raises their suspicions to the police.

Why a Neighborhood Watch?
It works. Throughout the country, dramatic decreases in burglary and related offenses are reported by law enforcement professionals in communities with active Watch programs. The Skybrook Board has established a partnership with the Huntersville Police Department.

Questions Regarding When to Call 911

For Huntersville residents, there are two primary phone numbers that can be used to reach police officers.

The first and best phone number to elicit a police response is 911. As always, if you have an emergency, please call 911. The Huntersville Police Department uses CMPD's 911 & Dispatch center where there is a large number of 911 call takers and dispatchers available 24/7. All 911 calls are prioritized and dispatched to officers. At no point will a "non emergency" 911 call take the place, or slow down, an emergency response from first responders. By calling 911, the caller will elicit a police response in person, or by phone if requested. Callers can remain anonymous when calling 911. The Huntersville Police Department encourages all citizens to report suspicious activities, safety concerns, and criminal/potential criminal activity. Citizens should feel comfortable using the 911 as their primary contact for police. As always, when calling 911, you will be asked if you need police, fire, or medic. You will be connected to the appropriate 911 call taker and they will prompt you through all of the information needed to prompt the appropriate response.

The Huntersville Police Department business phone number (704-464-5400) operates from 8am-5pm Monday-Friday, and is staffed by civilian employees/volunteers. This would be a good phone number to call if you have a question about a report, need to leave a specific message for a specific officer regarding a case, and general questions about public safety and events. This phone number will not direct you to a police officer or any first responders in the event of an emergency. These civilians do not have the ability to dispatch officers directly. If an officer needs to be dispatched, they will direct you to the 911 system. Outside of business hours, this phone number will connect you directly to the 911 system.
