Neighborhood Watch Program

The Village of Wilbur Park is now part of the Neighborhood Watch Program.  Our coordinator is Linda Noel.  Her contact information is lnoel@wilsonschool.com.  Please email her with your name, address and email address and she will put you on the list to receive any important information that is pertinent to Wilbur Park and/or the Affton area.  The purpose of the neighborhood watch program is to reduce crime through citizen involvement and police cooperation.  The members of the neighborhood watch program are ultimately the eyes and ears of their neighborhood for each other and the St. Louis County Police Department in a cooperative effort to keep it safe.  The officer contact at the Affton Precinct will email information to Linda and she will pass it along to all of those who wish to participate.


The Village of Wilbur Park now has a Facebook page.  Please “Like” our page.  We are hoping that this will be another form of communication for the village.
