Neighborhood Watch is an organized group of neighbors who observe more closely any activity or situation that depreciates the appearance or safety of their community. Neighborhood Watch is, as the name implies, a group of people who see the subtle, and not so subtle changes of their neighborhood. They simply observe and report violations of ordinances and laws to the proper enforcement agencies.
Neighborhood Watch simply consists of neighbors who watch. They report everything from crimes in progress to graffiti buildup in their neighborhood. If you are interested in becoming an active member of Neighborhood Watch call the Area Command providing police service to your neighborhood.
Neighborhood Watch is one of the oldest and most recognized programs to help neighborhoods in the fight against crime and other quality of life issues. Neighbors working together, and with their police department, is a benefit for all involved.
Join the hundreds of neighborhoods already benefitting from this crime prevention effort.
