Neighbors Looking Out for Each Other
Neighborhood Watch is a self-help community crime prevention program, designed to reduce crime by involving citizens in their communities. The program hinges on the basic crime prevention concept of reducing opportunity for crime through education and awareness. The Neighborhood Watch Program is the most effective means available for keeping crime out of our neighborhoods. Fortunately, good neighbors are found everywhere.
The prevention of crime has traditionally been both a law enforcement duty and a public responsibility. Criminal activity can be reduced if individuls and communities assume roles as partners with law enforcement. Crime is not inevitable; much can be done to reduce it. Individuals and communities can and do make an impact.
Neighborhood Watch programs are not designed as substitutes for law enforcement protection; rather, they supplement law enforcement activities by providing extra eyes and ears. When neighbors know each other personally, they are more aware of each otherís habits and routines. This awareness, in turn, makes them more observant of activities that are suspicious or out of place - such as strange cars in the neighborhood or suspicious persons in the vicinity of a home, while owners are away. Practicing extra awareness will not take a lot of time and will soon develop into a daily routine of watching out for what goes on in the neighborhood.
Neighborhood Watch bottom line: neighbors looking out for each other.
