An Effective, Efficient Crime Deterrent
A Neighborhood Watch program is one of the most effective, low cost deterrents for crime. It's also known as Crime Watch or Block Watch.
Local residents form a partnership with law enforcement officers. Criminals are concerned about citizens being good witnesses in addition to the police.
Meetings with law enforcement teach residents what to look for and what to report. They learn what to do in their neighborhoods and homes to protect themselves from crime. Involved members act as the "eyes and ears" of law enforcement.
Start A Neighborhood Watch Program
Request a consultation if your neighborhood is interested in:
- beginning a Neighborhood Watch program
- jump-starting a program where residents have lost interest
A crime prevention officer will provide resources to help organize your program. They can attend the initial meeting along with the officer assigned to your community.
