Neighborhood Watch Philosophy and Goals

Participants in a Neighborhood Watch learn:

  • To be familiar with neighbors and activities on their block
  • To recognize and report suspicious activity
  • To increase home security
  • To engrave personal property
  • To communicate with neighbors on a regular basis using block maps, newsletters, gatherings, etc.

The goals of the Neighborhood Watch are two-fold:

  • To reduce the level of fear of crime in our neighborhoods
  • To encourage citizens to accept the responsibility to improve neighborhood living conditions and reduce crime in our neighborhoods
