Why Neighborhood Watch?

It works. Throughout the country, dramatic decreases in crime and suspicious activity are reported by law enforcement professionals in communities with active watch programs.

Today's transient society produces communities that are less personal. Many families have two working parents and children involved in many activities that keep them away from home. An empty house in a neighborhood where none of the neighbors know the owner is a prime target for criminal activity.

Neighborhood Watch also helps build pride and serves as a springboard for efforts that address other community concerns such as recreation for youth, childcare, and affordable housing.
