Neighborhood Block Watch
Neighborhood Block Watch is a system designed to encourage neighbors to look out
for each other and reduce crime by reporting suspicious activity and crime.
Whether it’s called Neighborhood Watch, Block Watch, or Crime Watch, it helps create
the very best crime device invented: neighbors watching your home as well as their
Block Watch is the most successful anticrime program in the country. It’s the most
effective (and least expensive) tool to make sure we have the safe, pleasant environment
we all want for our families.
Most police agencies are ready and willing to help neighbors learn how to prevent
crime and how to be the “extra eyes and ears” for police. One major city started
the Block Watch program more than 20 years ago. The police department kept track
of crime in the neighborhoods the first year. Where there were Block Watch groups,
residential crime dropped 40 percent!
Block Watch Works!!
