Neighborhood Security


Croatan has organized a Neighborhood Security Program to help keep our community safe. It is based on the premise that communication is our biggest ally in fighting crime.

Croatan Civic League members and residents contribute the neighborhood security fund. Mike Kelly takes care of the hired off duty Police Patrol. The number of hours of patrol service varies based on the contributions and the time of the year. The off-season schedule which runs from September to May. While the patrol does not eliminate all of our problems, it significantly reduces problems such as speeding, vandalism, and parking problems. Master Police Officer Don Noha and his team want to make sure that these patrols are meeting your needs and giving you a good return on your Security Fund Contributions. Notify Officer Noha by email ( of your specific concern(s) including description with day(s) and time(s). Please copy me at For residents who are frequently away and would like for the Officers to conduct periodic home checks, notify Officer Noha. They will make every effort to address your concerns as part of their patrol activity. If you do not have email capability, contact me, Mike Kelly at 757-961-6244 or 703-439-9153. I will pass the concerns to Officer Noha for you.

Residents are encouraged to call the police if they witness any suspicious activity.
