Creating a Neighborhood Crime Watch

Print
Share

A Neighborhood Watch, Block Watch, Town Watch, Building Watch, Crime Watch, whatever the name you chose to call it, is one of the most effective and least costly ways to prevent crime in your neighborhood. A Neighborhood Crime Watch Group fights the isolation and crime creates and feeds upon by forging a bond among the neighborhood's residents which in turn helps reduce burglaries and robberies while improving relationships between police and the neighborhoods they serve.

A Neighborhood Crime Watch Group also helps build pride in your neighborhood, and serves as a springboard for efforts that can help address other neighborhood concerns such as recreation for youth, child care, affordable housing, and elimination of neighborhood blight.

Organize one today in your neighborhood.
