    Neighborhood Watch

    The Pleasant Prairie Neighborhood Watch program is intended for anyone who would like to feel safer in their neighborhood. It is not a vigilante program, nor is it a program of citizens on patrol in their neighborhoods. It is a program that encourages neighbors to get to know each other, to watch out for each other, and to call the police when something just doesn't seem right.

    You can have a safer neighborhood and substantially reduce your risk of criminal victimization. Studies have shown that neighborhoods whose residents pull together and form active Neighborhood Watch groups and implement simple low-cost crime prevention programs can drastically cut their crime rates.

     Remember, the best crime prevention tool is a good neighbor!

    The driving force behind starting a Neighborhood Watch program is the prevention and reduction of crime. A properly implemented program will also serve other needs in the community. Once the program is in place, it can be used as a forum for training in other areas such as Fire Prevention and Disaster Preparedness, and it can also become the basis for block parties and other social events, truly helping to put the "neighbor" back in the word neighborhood. It really doesn't take a lot of work on your part. We'll put your first meeting on for you. From there, you set your own pace with respect to how active you want to be and how often you would like to meet.

    If you are interested in bringing Neighborhood Watch to your area, please call the Crime Prevention Unit at 694-7105, or E-mail us at police@plprairie.com.
