Neighborhood Watch is much more than adding and using good locks. It is more of a state of mind or a level of awareness, because you are the extra eyes and ears to detect crime in your neighborhood. Criminals are always interested in where the police are. In a good Neighborhood Watch, criminals will also be leery of the homeowners because they know the homeowners are watchful and will be prepared to act by reporting to the police and their neighbors.
Our Crime Prevention Unit can let you know if there is already an established Neighborhood Watch in your area. If not, you can volunteer to be a Block Captain or Neighborhood Watch Coordinator.
