Hi Lisa, to add to the other replies below, Trulia just added a crime watch too. Are you moving from Seattle this year? Exciting! Oakland has a lot to offer from sunny weather, to great restaurants, and amazing hiking and biking trials and so much more!

If you want to find out more about specific neighborhoods, you can take a look at some of my other blogs on my website or give m e a call. I'm happy to share what I know about Oakland or other surrounding cities. I grew up in the east bay and never left, except for vacation of course:)

Hi Noemi,

There is a neighborhood watch group, through the NCPC. There is a Neighborhood Crime Prevention Council meeting in every district in Oakland, and additionally there are organized Neighborood Alert groups, and some "Block Clubs". These groups are all listed on the City Web Site.. You might do best to check with the Council Person for whatever area you are checking out. The Council person for this Havenscourt area (District 6) is Desley Brooks. You can link to her website from the city site also. I would advise contacting her offic directly to ask more questions about crime and neighborhood meetings, as she surely would have personaly knowledge of the meetings. Council members usually attend at least one NCPC meeting a month, or at least have their aides go. The crimewatch map is also on the city site. Good luck! ... more
