Neighbors should form a group with a common goal, deter criminal activity in their neighborhood. How the groups are set up is completely up to the group, but there should be a partnership in place with local law enforcement. Visit the national site to learn more about how to get started and to register your watch group.
Neighborhood Watch signs are a great way to show potential criminals that your neighborhood is on high alert for any suspicious activity. Contact your local law enforcement to find out how to order a sign.
Once a group has been established, it is a good idea to meet regularly and discuss the program in general and any new ideas that may help.
