Neighborhood Watch What it is??????

Neighborhood Watch is
Neighborhood Watch is simply a program of neighbors watching out for each other during the workday, evenings, vacations or any other absence. The purpose of the Neighborhood Watch program is to create an alert neighborhood by using simple crime prevention methods. The program works through the mutual aid of neighbors watching the property of other neighbors. This has several advantages, including the fact that your neighbors know who you are, what type of car you drive, and who belongs, as a rule, at your residence. A patrol officer driving by your home might not recognize someone as a stranger in your yard. However, an alert neighbor would recognize the person as a stranger. They could then call 9-1-1 to alert police of the suspicious activity. Neighborhood Watch does not promote vigilantism. Members of Neighborhood Watch groups are never asked to put themselves in harm’s way to prevent crime. They should only observe and report suspicious activities to the Police Department. This leaves the responsibility for confronting and apprehending criminals where it belongs—with your Liberty Twp. Police Officers.

If you see us walking or driving around, we are looking for your help. The last thing we want, is for people to think we are vigilanti’s we are NOT. We look to protect your property when you are away. As well as your neighbors. This is why it is so important we work together. We try to give our information to the manager, if we can. We think of what good we can do, and not to be feared. Come to our next meeting and give your views, and inputs we need everyone to help turn our community around. Thank you, jim
