Neighborhood Watch is a crime prevention program that educates citizens about types of crime and crime prevention techniques. It teaches citizens how to help themselves by identifying and reporting suspicious activity in their neighborhoods. In addition, it provides citizens with the opportunity to make their neighborhoods safer and improve the quality of life. Neighborhood Watch groups typically focus on observation and awareness as a means of preventing crime. For more information on forming or joining a Neighborhood Watch Group, see the National Sheriffs’ Association Neighborhood Watch website at:

In many jurisdictions around the country, volunteers in the community have offered their time and skills to law enforcement agencies. These citizen volunteers help supplement and support officers and civilian personnel by allowing them to concentrate on their primary duties. Volunteer roles may include performing clerical tasks, serving as an extra set of “eyes and ears,” and assisting with search and rescue activities.
