How do I...?
Neighborhood Watch is a crime prevention program, which enlists the active participation of citizens, in cooperation with law enforcement, to reduce crime in our community.
What it Involves
Neighbors getting to know each other and working together in a program of mutual assistance.
Citizens being trained to recognize and report suspicious activity and identify vehicles that are not usually in the area.
The implementation of crime prevention techniques, such as home security, vehicle security and Operation Identification.
Why Neighborhood Watch?
Over 40 million crimes are committed every year nationwide.
There can't be a law enforcement officer on every corner, so citizen involvement is essential to combat this social crisis.
By cooperating with each other and the police, people can help fight crime in their community the most effective way - before it begins.
Want to make life more difficult for criminals? By taking a few simple precautions you can reduce the risk of becoming a victim of a crime and also discourage those who commit crimes.
