If you live in Pearland, have you thought about setting up a neighborhood watch on your block?
The Neighborhood Watch Program is organized to enable the police and the community to work together to make specific geographical areas more crime resistant to reduce crime. It is a citizen involvement, neighborhood and community-based effort, designed to help citizens and the police department in preventing primarily residential burglaries.
In harmony with the philosophy of Community Policing, Neighborhood Watch encourages strong working relationships between patrol officers and the citizens they serve. Neighborhood Watch, Crime Watch, Block Watch, Town Watch, -- whatever the title, is one of the most effective and least costly methods to prevent crime and reduce fear. The Watch idea is adaptable. There are Dormitory Watches, Park Watches, Apartment Watches, Window Watches, Boat Watches, School Watches, Realtor Watches, Utility Watches, and Business Watches.
A Watch can be organized around any geographic unit. Police departments across the country are learning that community participation in anti-crime programs is essential. One of the most effective ways to promote citizen interaction with police is the sharing of information. Citizen groups determine specific needs or problems and then share this information with local police. The police then act on this information and report back to the group on their progress. This program also works when the police go to public groups and organizations and make them aware of specific criminal activities, or the needs of the police department.
