When crime hits close to home in your neighborhood, you may want to consider forming aÂ Neighborhood Watch. Â This program is one of the oldest and best-known crime prevention concepts in North America.Â The National Neighborhood Watch Program was created in 1972 to assist citizens and law enforcement.Â
This program empowersÂ homeowners to become active in protecting their community through participation in Neighborhood Watch groups. ResidentsÂ participate in Neighborhood Watch in theirÂ area by organizing residents to communicate any suspicious behavior to others by phone trees and reporting it to the authorities.
