A word of Caution!
A Neighborhood Watch does not mean prying or nosy neighbors who try to
stop criminals all by themselves. As a member, your responsibility is to
call the police and report what you've seen -- not
to take action
Remember, neighborhoods are made up of people who have the power to
protect each others safety. By reporting any suspicious circumstances
to law enforcement agencies, members of a Neighborhood Watch actually
increase their own safety.
Police cannot fight crime they do not know about. When alert citizens
keep them informed, the police are far more effective against crime --
and citizens have better protection and safer neighborhoods.
Join your neighbors to organize a NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH program in your
community. You'll be protecting your own home and you own safety.
