Neighborhood Watch Program
- Communicate regularly using tools specific to Neighborhood Watch;
- Recognize and report suspicious activity;
- Increase home and vehicle security;
- Increase personal safety of residents; and
- Make neighborhoods less attractive to criminals.
In a business district or a large office building where other topics such as shoplifting and robbery prevention, dealing with difficult people, workplace violence prevention and money handling security may be a concern, a Business Watch may be needed. Business Watch participants often develop a communication system through a fax or e-mail network to share information about potential problems and keep in touch with other local businesses.
Businesses interested in organizing a Business Watch should contact their local Crime Prevention Coordinator.
