 Neighborhood Watch

Taking Personal Responsibility for Crime

 

nwatch.gifThe Neighborhood Watch Program works by doing the following:
  • Neighborhood Watch teaches citizens crime prevention techniques to reduce the risk of being victimized at home or in public.
  • Citizens are trained on the importance of recognizing suspicious activities and how to report them.
  • Participants are taught how to make their homes more secure and the importance of recording and identifying their property.
  • Allows neighbors to get to know each other and their routines so that any out of ordinary activity can be reported and investigated.
  • Creates a cohesive body of concerned citizens who become the eyes and ears of law enforcement, thus becoming actively involved in the reduction of crime in their community.
