What Is a Neighborhood Watch Program?
Neighborhood Watch is a program designed to increase neighborhood livability by reducing crime and the fear of crime by active citizen participation.
By organizing a Neighborhood Watch you will:
- Become familiar with your neighbors and activities on the block.
- Be able to recognize and report suspicious activity.
- Learn ways to make your home and yourself a “hard target.”
- Become part of a block map and telephone tree system.
- Promote a positive open relationship between the Law Enforcement community and your neighborhood.
What Neighborhood Watch Is Not
- A vigilante force working outside the normal procedures of law enforcement.
- A program designed for participants to take personal risks to prevent crime.
- A 100% guarantee that crime will not occur in your neighborhood.
