​Neighborhood Crime Watch



The Neighborhood Crime Watch program is only successful with your participation.

We are a group of Ensley Township citizens who are concerned about crime in our township. We started organizing in March of 1996 with the help of Undersheriff Brian Boyd from the Newaygo County Sheriff’s Department and then Newaygo County Commissioner, Mary K. Balberde. 



Caring & Sharing: Our goal is sharing methods of Prevention and Awareness. 


Neighborhood Crime Watch Meeting Information

Where: Ensley Township Hall

Date & Time: 3rd Tuesday of each month 7:30 PM


We have elected a Board of Directors from our membership to facilitate the organizational process and will re-elect officers each January. 

Our current 2020 Board of Directors:

  • Barry Wolf - Chair Person

  • Pat Hills - Vice-Chair Person

  • Vicki Rondeau - Secretary

  • Diane Price - Treasurer

  • Phil Starr - Trustee

  • Dave Rondeau - Trustee

Deputy Kalinowski of the Newaygo County Sherriff is assigned to our crime watch meetings and helps set up guest speakers.  

This keeps us informed of incidents taking place and potential incidents in our township. 

In addition, the Sherriff Department has a system called NIXLE starting in 2016 that can send e-mail or text to your phone, PC or selected device to all interested township residents. This can range from sending reminders to everyone of when the next meeting will take place, to breaking news about something in our community. See below link to get the form to get signed up.  

At each meeting we have an informational program relating to Public Safety, a short business meeting, coffee and cookies, and a great time visiting with the neighbors you have been too busy to visit with. 

We welcome all residents of Ensley Township to join us. If you would like to be a part of the Ensley Neighborhood Crime Watch, please come to a meeting or call Ensley Township Hall.
