The benefits of having a Neighbourhood Watch Program/System are limitless. Not just in preventing street crimes that could potentially be committed against those in the neighbourhood, but in bringing a community together.
To be clear, Neighbourhood Watches do not stop crime; at least, not always. They can however, reduce it. But to do so, there has to be the active and ongoing effort by those within the community.
If we are willing to come together and create such a program by committing to one another, we can begin to realise those benefits. It would be in these cases when no news is good news!
