Neighborhood Watch
Purpose
Neighborhood Watch is a crime prevention program that:
  • Teaches citizens techniques to reduce the risk of being victimized at home and in public
  • Teaches citizens about the importance of recognizing suspicious activities and how to report them
  • Teaches participants how to make their homes more secure and properly ID their property
  • Allows citizens in neighborhoods to get to know each other and their routines so that any out of place activity can be reported and investigated

Crime Statistics
