Neighborhood Watch is one of the most effective and least costly ways to prevent crime and reduce fear.

Neighborhood Watch fights isolation that crime both creates and feeds upon. It forges bonds among area residents, helps reduce burglaries and robberies, and improves relations between police and the communities they serve.

 WHY NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH?Crime Watch Sign

Because it works. Throughout the country, dramatic decreases in burglary and related offenses are reported by law enforcement professionals in communities with active Watch Programs.

Today’s transient society produces communities that are less personal. Many families have two working parents and children are involved in many activities that keep them away from home. An empty house in a neighborhood, where none of the neighbors know the owner, is a prime target for burglary.

Neighborhood Watch also helps build pride and serves as a springboard for efforts that address other community concerns such as recreation for youth, child care, and affordable housing.
