The Huntington District is a participant in Corps Watch, a neighborhood crime-watch deterrence program to protect U.S. Army Corps of Engineers assets. Every year millions of dollars in property are lost due to theft, vandalism and other threats or suspicious activity against Corps property nation-wide. This program is designed to heighten public awareness of the seriousness of the impacts of crime within or around dams, lakes, navigation locks, recreation areas and other Corps facilities.
To help fight these crimes and reduce operations and maintenance costs, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has received Congressional authority to participate in the Corps Watch Program. This program does not replace the 911 emergency notification systems.
