Why Community Watch?

  • A Community Watch program helps foster a good working relationship with police through effective communications, and allows the police to get to know the citizens personally through effective community policing efforts. The goal is to keep neigh- borhoods safe and eliminate repeat calls to residences.
  • It works! Across the country, dramatic decreases in burglary and related offenses are reported by law enforcement in communities with active Community Watch groups.
  • In today‚Äôs transient society, communities may be less personal. Many families have two working parents, and children are involved in many activities that keep them away from home. An empty house in a neighborhood where none of the neighbors know the owner is a prime target for burglary.
  • Community Watch also helps build pride and serves as a springboard for efforts that address other community concerns such as recreation for youth and affordable housing.
