Neighborhood Watch

Goals

The goals of Neighborhood Watch are to enhance safety awareness in the community and to take a leadership role in working with local law enforcement.

Responsibilities include organizing and maintaining a crime-prevention network of block captains for every street in the neighborhood so that residents may watch out for one another. Members of this group should investigate the latest ideas and trends in both property crimes and crimes against persons, and determine the most effective ways to prevent those types of crimes in the community.
