How to Organize a Neighborhood Watch Group

  • Choose the boundary area that you would like the neighborhood watch to cover.
  • Decide a time, date and location for the first informational meeting.
  • Distribute invitations to the upcoming meeting.
  • Recruit neighbors to attend the meeting and encourage each person to bring someone with them.


  • Group receives special training on how to detect suspicious activities.
