Neighborhood Watch is a community group of neighborhood volunteers that assist in making their neighborhood safer by serving as extra eyes and ears for the police department.
The main objective of Neighborhood Watch is to reduce the incidence of crime by:
- Increasing citizens awareness of neighborhood crime through education
- Training citizens in the terms of better property security and assist them in making their property more secure
- Developing a neighborhood action program where neighbors help watch each others property and report suspicious activity to the police
- Encouraging citizens to cooperate with police by reporting crime
