Crime affects us all because it affects the environment that we live in, play and work in. This is why it is important to remember that crime prevention is everybody's business. In our communities, it is our job to be a good neighbor. Being a good neighbor means looking out for one another. Our job together is to come together and discourage criminals from coming into our neighborhoods and disrupting our peace of mind and our feeling of safety. Neighborhood Watch works but it is like any other crime prevention tool, it works when you work the program.
Please consider starting a Neighborhood Watch and or Business Watch for your area, because crime prevention is everybody's business.
Here is how to get a watch group started:
Although it is up to each watch group to determine how often they want to meet, we encourage face to face meetings three times per year to talk about what is going on in your neighborhood. As a watch member, newsletters will be provided for you to email or distribute to your neighbors, and you will be added to our confidential email list to receive important notifications which will include upcoming crime prevention training's, information and tips.
