Neighborhood Watch Websites Provided by Neighborhood Link


Communication is the cornerstone of the Neighborhood Watch Program. Back in 1972 when the Neighborhood Watch program was launched, there was no public internet. Today however, a Neighborhood Link Website can help you create a successful Neighborhood Watch program in your neighborhood.

Neighborhood Watch is about more than fighting crime

Neighborhoods across the nation use Neighborhood Watch to prevent crime and build stronger relationships with law enforcement. Yet Neighborhood Watch is not just about crime prevention. It is about getting to know neighbors and enhancing the quality of life in the neighborhood. An important goal at neighborhood meetings is to learn more about each other so neighbors are available to help each other during difficult times. These days many Neighborhood Watch groups have begun using websites to help amplify and enhace their efforts. Neighborhood Link, which was established in 1998, hosts over 36,000 neighborhood websites across the country. Out of that 36,000, several hundred are Neighborhood Watch websites.

Essential elements in a Neighborhood Watch Program

Some of the essential steps involved in setting up and maintaining a successful Neighborhood Watch program involve:

  • Creating a map of streets and households covered in the program
  • Holding regular meetings
  • Communicating Crime activity to neighbors
