Why call the Police about Party Houses? What is Northern Division’s CAPP (Community Assisted Party Program)?

The police department is powerless to do anything unless they receive a call for service and see evidence of illegal activity. You have to call, then police officers can take enforcement action to stop it. If the police observe repeated violations they can take escalating enforcement measures that will usually result in eventual compliance.

University City Neighborhood Watch
Do you have a Neighborhood Watch sign on your street? If you can’t see one from your house, then you may not be connected to University City’s Neighborhood Watch Network.

Neighborhood Watch is a crime prevention program that enlists the active participation of residents in cooperation with the San Diego Police Department (SDPD) to reduce crime, solve problems, and improve the quality of life in your area.

You will get to know your neighbors, and learn how to recognize and report crimes and suspicious activities, protect yourself, your family, and your property, protect your neighbor’s family and property, and identify crime and disorder problems in your area and work with SDPD personnel to solve them.

To become part of University City’s NeighborhoodWatch, contact Barbara Gellman, Neighborhood Watch Coordinator, at

The attached Neighborhood Watch documents were adapted from SDPD information by University City Neighborhood Watch Coordinator Barbara Gellman. For more information, visit or email Click or tap the image to view the PDF document.
