Wise Eyes

The Wise Eyes program was originally designed to assist in child abduction cases, since the first three hours are critical in saving a child’s life. Wise Eyes has now expanded to keep the community informed on public safety issues such as burglaries, thefts, scams, drug investigations and other criminal activity.

The program is designed to disseminate vital information to the community quickly via e-mail or fax to participating neighborhood groups, businesses and registered individuals.

Neighborhood watch programs such as Wise Eyes are most effective means available for keeping crime out of our neighborhoods. It relies on the best crime-fighting tool ever, a good neighbor.



Free training is available for clubs, businesses and neighborhood groups. The Carlsbad Police Department will provide training to Wise Eyes participants in

  • Starting and maintaining a crime watch network
  • Narcotics and drug lab recognition
  • Home safety and burglary prevention
  • Identifying and reporting suspicious activities


The Wise Eyes Program unites the Carlsbad Police Department with local organizations and individual residents in a community-wide effort to reduce crime in our neighborhoods.

Neighbors working together with the police are a formidable crime-fighting team.
