What is a Neighborhood Watch?
The Plaza Midwood Neighborhood Association actively pursues a safe, responsibile living environment by supporting our law enforcement officers and their efforts. To put as many “eyes on the street” as possible, we also support and facilitate an active Neighborhood Watch effort. Anchored by grid-captains, the network sets up phone trees and email lists that help Plaza Midwood stay better in touch with each other and get the word out about suspicious activity.
Three Goals of a Neighborhood Watch Program
- Build a partnership with the community to reduce crime and improve livability.
- Instill a greater sense of security while reducing the fear of crime.
- Create a strong sense of community and put the “neighbor” back in neighborhood.
