A note from your Whiting Woods Watch Captains

The Neighborhood Watch program is one of the most effective means available for keeping crime out of our neighborhoods. It relies on the best crime fighting tool ever

invented ó a good neighbor. Fortunately, good neighbors are found everywhere. They live in houses and in apartment buildings and in urban, suburban and rural areas.

When neighbors work together with law enforcement, it creates the best crime fighting team around. Be a good neighbor and make your community safer from criminals having a Neighborhood Watch program.

Neighborhood Watch is a crime prevention program which enlists the active participation of citizens in cooperation with law enforcement to reduce crime in their communities.

It involves:

         Neighbors getting to know each other, taking the time

         To care about each other and working together in a program of mutual assistance.

         Training citizens to recognize and report suspicious activities in their neighborhoods.

         Citizens implementing crime prevention strategies such as home security and Operation Identification.

You and your neighbors are the ones who really know what is going on in your community. By cooperating with each other and law enforcement, people can help fight crime in their community in the most effective way ó before it begins!

IF A CRIME OCCURS ó REPORT IT!

Sound easy? Unfortunately, only about half of all crimes are ever reported. Too bad, because law enforcement canít do anything if they donít know what happened? Eyewitness information is the key to solving many crimes. Call the Glendale police department . A five-minute delay may reduce the chance of ever catching the criminal. Of course if it s life threaten emergency please call 911. Tell the police as much as you can. No fact is too trivial. In many cases it is what victims and witnesses tell police about the criminal that result in an arrest.
