There are plenty of things that might keep you up at night, finances, work, stress, family, but, in America, fear shouldn’t be one of them, especially in your own home. Yes, statistically, you’re far less likely to get burglarized if your home has a security system, but the truth is that it takes more than a security system and a baseball bat under the bed to build an environment you and your family feel truly safe.
Building a safe community starts with the strengthening of relationships between neighbors that share the common goal of making your neighborhood a safer place to live. One of the easiest ways to get involved and build those neighborly relationships is with a Neighborhood Watch Program.
