Lake Lapeer Neighborhood Watch

The Lake Lapeer Neighborhood Watch was established in 2018 with the support of the Lake Lapeer Association and in cooperation with the Lapeer County Sheriff’s Department.  The mission of the Neighborhood Watch is to bring Lake Lapeer neighbors together to maintain a safe, friendly, active, and better-connected community for the purpose of being the best possible residential area.

To promote safety, road signs are posted around the lake reminding everyone to be alert to any unusual or suspicious activity.  Any such activity should be reported promptly by calling “9-1-1”.  If you see something, say something.

To encourage a friendly, active and better-connected community, the Neighborhood Watch sponsors annual lake-wide activities so that all Lake Lapeer residents can get better acquainted and enjoy the company of other residents.  Similarly, to help residents of various neighborhoods around the lake get better acquainted, the Neighborhood Watch promotes neighborhood-specific activities such as block parties, potlucks, and trick-or-treating.  See the following calendar of 2023 activities.  Finally, to further promote a better-connected community, the Neighborhood Watch maintains a directory of Lake Lapeer residents.  This directory is available in electronic and hard-copy formats. 

Everyone living on or adjacent to Lake Lapeer is invited to participate in the Neighborhood Watch.  By working together, we will be able to maintain a safe, friendly, active, and better-connected lake community making Lake Lapeer one of the best residential areas in Michigan.
