Neighborhood Watch   |  NW

Neighborhood Watch is one of the oldest and best-known crime prevention concepts in North America. In the late 1960s, an increase in crime heightened the need for a crime prevention initiative focused on residential areas and involving local citizens. The National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) responded, creating the National Neighborhood Watch Program in 1972, to assist citizens and law enforcement.  

NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH

A neighborhood watch program is a group of people living in the same area who want to make their neighborhood safer by working together and in conjunction with local law enforcement to reduce crime and improve their quality of life..

ORGANIZING A
NW GROUP

One of the final steps in forming and organizing a Neighborhood Watch is the designation of leadership.

NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH SKILLS

Once you have established a strong Watch group, it is important to start building skills needed to make your group a success, like 'If you see something, say something.'

It is only with the gracious financial support of our corporate partners,
that our goal of making safer communities is achievable.  Thank you!
