Neighborhood Watch: The Neighborhood Watch program is an initiative of different residential communities in the United States of America to help their police forces curb crime and increase the safety of the citizens. Under this program, residents of a neighborhood volunteer each night to patrol their communities and keep an eye out for any kind of suspicious activity taking place. If they do spot anything which seems out of the ordinary, they are required to contact their Beat Patrol officer immediately. The Neighborhood Watch program makes people participate in making their neighborhood a safer place, all the while bridging the communication gaps between the police and the citizens at large.
