There are numerous benefits to participation in a Neighborhood Watch Program. No area is immune to crime but neighbors working together is one of the principle ways that a community can fight back.
First, form a small planning committee of neighbors to discuss needs, the level of interest, and possible problems. Decide on a date and place for a Neighborhood Watch meeting.
Crime Prevention Officer
Next, contact the Trophy Club Police Department and ask that a Crime Prevention Officer come to your meeting to discuss the Neighborhood Watch and help assess your neighborhood’s problems and needs.
Contact Your Neighbors
Finally, contact as many of your neighbors as possible and find out if they feel at risk of being victimized, if they have taken steps to protect their homes, if they would be willing to attend a meeting to organize a Neighborhood Watch group in your area. You may be surprised to learn how many of your neighbors will be willing to participate.
Observe & Report
Neighborhood Watch is not designed to intervene during a criminal act. They do not approach or follow suspicious persons or vehicles. Neighborhood Watch participants observe and report suspicious activities and, if necessary, to be a good witness.
