This informative orientation will answer questions about Neighborhood Watch and describe how it works and helps neighborhoods.
“Neighborhood Watch is the best and easiest way to learn about crime trends, disaster preparedness, home security and personal safety issues,” said Palmdale’s Crime Prevention Officer Kery German. “You’ll also see how easy it is form a Neighborhood Watch group and how little time it actually takes.”
In addition to helping to lower crime, the Neighborhood Watch program is effective in preparing for any type of emergency situation such as an earthquake or wildfire that may arise.
“It’s also one of the best ways to meet your neighbors and start building a sense of community,” said German.
