Lakewood Civilian Safety Watch is a volunteer organization founded to help keep the streets of Lakewood safe. As the eyes and ears of the community, LCSW serves as a vital complement to local emergency agencies. Nightly patrols comprised entirely of volunteers cruise the darkened neighborhoods, ever vigilant for the sign of someone or something suspicious. These patrols are beyond the scope of the police department and provide an extra layer of security to Lakewood’s streets. Many would-be criminals are deterred from carrying out their nefarious activities because they know the likelihood of detection is increased due to the ever-steady presence of LCSW patrols.
When a loved one goes missing, panic sets in and the terror is indescribable. With efficiency and professionalism, LCSW coordinates a search and rescue team, working hand in hand with local volunteer and emergency agencies to maintain an effective and thorough search. Dozens of missing persons, both children and adults, have been located and returned to their worried families by devoted LCSW volunteers.READ MORE SUBSCRIBE FOR UPDATES AND ALERTS
