Goals of Neighborhood Watch

Goals of the Neighborhood Watch Program
The Neighborhood Watch program recognizes that citizens have the right to a safe neighborhood. Neighborhood Watch is a program intended to increase safety in neighborhoods by involving individuals and families in a united crime prevention effort.

With committed citizens and the assistance of law enforcement officers, the Neighborhood Watch program will help promote a united and safe community and help empower the citizens against the defenselessness of a crime. Leave the responsibility for apprehending criminals where it belongs - with the police department.
