Neighborhood Crime Watch is an effective method of preventing crime and reducing fear among citizens. It can forge bonds between residents and improve relations between law enforcement and the community.
If a neighborhood would like to form a Neighborhood Crime Watch, it should contact the Sheriff's Office for assistance in training members in recognizing suspicious activity and reporting skills and for information on local crime patterns. The NCW group recruits its members, keeps up-to-date on new residents and makes special effort to involve the elderly, working parents, and young people to create a diverse mix of participants.
