One of the oldest and best known crime prevention concepts in history, Neighborhood Watch was created to unite law enforcement agencies, private organizations, and individual citizens in a massive effort to reduce residential crime. Neighbors work together to help prevent crime in their communities. But Neighbor Helping Neighbor goes far beyond that. Neighbors get to know each other and help each other prepare for emergencies and disasters. Who would help that elderly person in your community in the event of a disaster? Do children know where to run in your neighborhood for a safe haven? Neighbor Helping Neighbor/Neighborhood Watch can help to create safer communities.
