Eagle Eye Neighborhood Watch Program
The Eagle Eye Neighborhood Park Watch Program is brought to you by the St. Charles Park District in conjunction with the Illinois Association of Park Districts. This educational park safety awareness program is available free of charge to the community.
To schedule a visit by Seemore the Eagle for school gatherings, scouting events, etc., please call 630-513-4343 or email Andrew Buss, Supervisor of Park Safety and Community Relations.
The Eagle Eye Neighborhood Park Watch Program is an effort to prevent crime and vandalism to playground and play equipment, to alleviate suspicious activities in parks, and to promote community involvement.
PLEASE REPORT ALL SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITIES!
Non-Emergencies & Suspicious Activities:
Call 630-513-4343 (Park Safety Main Office)
In order for this program to be most effective, it must rely on citizen participation and support. While we do our best to keep a close watch on activities taking place in the parks, we cannot be everywhere all the time. Therefore, we are asking you (residents of our community) to help us keep an Eagle Eye on our parks.
Seemore the Eagle
Seemore the Eagle is the mascot who represents the Eagle Eye Neighborhood Park Watch Program. With Seemore's assistance, children are taught about the importance of proper behavior in our parks and how to take care of park property and equipment.
Seemore's "Eagle Eyes"
Seemore visits schools and recreation sites to encourage children to be observant and responsible park patrons and to tell their parents if they witness wrongful activities. With Seemore's help, kids learn to "see" the value of parks, recreation facilities and programs in their lives. They learn our parks are worthy of preserving and protecting as safe places to enjoy and fun places to play.
