The City of Akron provides anti-crime signs and other information on how to fight crime in your neighborhood.

Pledge to Fight Crime

Mayor Don Plusquellic is asking Akron residents to become a part of the solution and help solve crimes in our community.  

The mayor calls for more involvement, saying, "I would like our citizens to consider joining a block watch group or participate in neighborhood safety in some other way.  When someone has witnessed a crime, he or she needs to do the right thing and call and report it. Too often people witness a crime, but refuse to disclose what they know."

The City of Akron has available to block watch groups and others who may want to participate in making their neighborhood safer, an anti-crime yard sign pledging that you will call police if you witness a crime on your block.

Akronresidents who would like to participate can pick up a free sign with the slogan: Crime… Report it, Don’t Support it! at the Akron Police Department's community relations office at 217 S. High Street, room 402.  

Over the past 8 years, residents have displayed more than 7,500 of these or other anti-crime signs.

To receive your free sign, you must be an Akron resident and show proof of residency.  Only one sign will be given per household, and we encourage citizens to keep the signs up year round.

For information on where to get your free anti-crime yard sign, call the Community Relations Unit of the Akron Police Department at (330) 375-2390 or Billy Soule, Assistant to the Mayor for Community Relations at (330) 375-2660.
