The Neighborhood Watch program is a self-help community crime prevention program with the main objective being to reduce crime by involving citizens in communities. It also hinges on the basic crime prevention concept of reducing the opportunity for crimes to occur through education. The Neighborhood Watch program is the most effective means available for keeping crime out of our neighborhoods. It relies on the best crime fighting tool ever invented: a watchful neighbor. Fortunately, good neighbors are found everywhere. They live in houses, in apartment buildings and in urban and suburban and rural areas.
