Neighborhood Watch

Neighborhood Watch is a crime prevention program which enlists to active participation of residents in cooperation with law enforcement to reduce crime in their communities.

It involves:

  • Neighbors getting to know each other and working together in a program of mutual assistance.
  • Residents trained to recognize and report suspicious activities in their neighborhood.
  • Implementation of crime prevention techniques, such as home security.
  • Neighbors looking out for each other!

How does Neighborhood Watch start?

A motivated individual, a few concerned residents, a community organization, can spearhead the efforts to establish a Watch.

  • Organize a small planning committee of neighbors to discuss needs, the level of interest, and possible community problems.
  • Select a coordinator or Block Captain who will be responsible for relaying information to the other members.
  • Create a block group message/chat to ask questions, relay information, etc.
