Benefits of Neighborhood Watch
The chief aims of a Neighborhood Watch program are to report suspicious activity, reduce crime, and increase neighborhood safety. While beginning a Neighborhood Watch Program is not a guarantee of crime reduction, studies show that neighborhoods will experience an average of a 16-percent crime reduction under the protection of a Neighborhood Watch program.

Some other benefits of Neighborhood Watch include:

  • An increased sense of responsibility and control. These programs help citizens feel empowered in their everyday lives, which can help reduce fear and may lead to an increased sense of personal security. 
  • Greater unity within neighborhoods. Regular meetings bring neighbors together to talk and get to know one another. This leads to a greater sense of unity within the neighborhood and can also bring neighbors together as friends
  • Improved relations with law enforcement. Crime watch programs increase contacts between neighbors and law enforcement, leading to more productive and comfortable relationships.
  • Better community unity. Having something in common, like membership in a Neighborhood Watch Program, brings people together and builds community unity.
  • Improved quality of life. When crime goes down, the quality of life improves for residents. Safer neighborhoods mean happier residents and a better place to live.
