Crime Prevention and Neighborhood Watch

Crime Prevention and Neighborhood Watch

The concept of a neighborhood watch began in the late 1960s. There was a rise in crime that caused the nation to consider community involvement at the local level. The National Sheriff’s Association (NSA) organized a way for local citizens to communicate with local law enforcement officials, calling it the National Neighborhood Watch Program. After the tragedy of 9/11, it became more important than ever to secure the safety of our communities. Neighborhood watch programs have sprung up all over America with the common goal of making the world a safer, better place to live.
