Neighborhood Watch Program enlists the active participation of residents, in cooperation with law enforcement, to reduce crime in their communities. The program was started in an effort to educate residents regarding their roles and responsibilities in the prevention of crime, and to encourage them to take active measures to prevent crime. It calls upon residents to step forward and assist police in organizing their community into a cohesive unit working towards the goal of building a safer, crime-free neighborhood.
Neighborhood Watch groups discuss neighborhood crime problems with the objective of developing solutions to local crime problems. The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office supplies crime information to neighborhood watch organizations and instruct these groups in various crime prevention techniques.
