One of the most effective and inexpensive
ways to secure your home at the property line is to turn on the eyes and
ears of your neighborhood.
Make the effort to take the appropriate
steps to protect yourself, your family and your property. Then it is time
to extend the scope of your efforts and become involved with neighbours
who are equally concerned and are also willing to join with you to build a
safer community. Putting crime prevention into action will help contribute
to your peace of mind and enjoyment of your community.
policing programs, like a Neighborhood Watch program that is established
in co-operation with the local police, have shown great success in
reducing property crime around the world. Burglars know when they’re being
watched. And they don’t like it.
It is important that crime be
prevented at the community level. The Neighbourhood Watch is a program
that invites community participation, encouraging and educating residents
to report crime and related problems in a formal and organized manner.
If we take a cooperative, active role in crime prevention, criminals
will find it difficult to operate in our neighbourhoods.
Neighbourhood Watch is simply a program of neighbours watching other
neighbours property during times when burglaries are likely to occur. A
police officer patrolling your community may not recognize a stranger in
your yard – but your neighbours would! The program works through mutual
aid – Neighbours Watching out for Neighbours. Neighbours know who you are,
what type of car you own and may be the first to notice a burglar at your
window or door. Each neighbour can effectively watch those homes to each
side, the front, and the back of their own home.
Residents in an
involved neighbourhood will assist their immediate neighbours by watching
each others' property and reporting suspicious activity to the police.
This program can be an effective deterrent to crime while respecting the
individual's need for privacy. The Neighbourhood Watch program has been
adapted to other concepts including marinas, apartments, cottage areas,
and rural districts.
In partnership with local police, community
members may learn how to make their homes and businesses less inviting for
opportunistic criminals, how to participate in other crime prevention
programs and how to recognize and safely report any suspicious activity in
The network also works as a conductor for
information. Through watch and zone coordinators, information can
spread fast to help protect neighbourhoods from crime.
when residents feel that their community is safe, it becomes difficult to
keep the program running. We may feel that the problem has been solved and
as a result, the Neighbourhood Watch program can become dormant. It is
very important that we continue to work together, with the community and
