Want to know the best crime prevention device ever invented? — A good neighbor! In fact, neighbors working together in cooperation with law enforcement can make one of the best crime-fighting teams around.

Neighborhood Watch is a crime prevention program which enlists the active participation of citizens in cooperation with law enforcement to reduce crime in their communities.

Remember, law enforcement officers can’t be everywhere at once — but you and your neighbors can. Put that neighborhood “know how” to work.

How to Prevent Crime in your Neighborhood

  • Get to know your neighbors
  • Use your eyes, ears, and then your telephone
  • If you spot something suspicious, call the police immediately

Neighbors Should Look For…

  • Property being taken out of closed businesses or houses where no one is at home
  • Cars, vans, or trucks moving slowly with no apparent destination, or without lights
  • Anyone being forced into a vehicle
  • A stranger sitting in a car or stopping to talk to a child
  • Abandoned cars
