Chances are good that a home burglarized today is located in a neighborhood where one vital crime-prevention tool is missing: an active Neighborhood Watch group. This partnership of citizens and law enforcement has become a key to preventing burglary and crime in neighborhoods nationwide.
What is Neighborhood Watch?
The Sheriff's Office partners with residents and homeowner associations in establishing Neighborhood Watch groups throughout Jefferson County. The program encourages and helps residents to be vigilant in their own communities, and to communicate with neighbors and law enforcement to identify, prevent and solve crime in residential neighborhoods.
