Neighborhood Watch Alerts for Individuals
Don't have a Neighborhood Watch program in your area? No problem! You can still send and receive alerts to and from others in your community, to and from nearby communities and from your participating local police department! Plus, you can get Amber Alerts and emergency notifications from FEMA, NOAA, NWS for emergency weather alerts, DHS for terror alerts, and many other government agencies.
By using Neighborhood Watch Alerts to electronically notify or receive alerts from your neighbors via email and text messaging, you can speed the time of notification from days to almost instant, making you and your neighborhood safer.
According to research, both formal and informal Neighborhood Watch programs reduce crime on average, by 16%. This works because YOU know your neighborhood! You know who belongs and who doesn't, what's normal and what looks out of place, who's on vacation and who's just out for a stroll. Unless a police officer lives and works in your neighborhood, they can't possibly know what's out of place or recognize suspicious activity like you can! By becoming aware of what's happening in your own neighborhood, you are better equipped to safeguard yourself, your family and your property and to help police put criminals behind bars!
No matter if you live in a gated community, small neighborhood, condo or townhome, or an apartment complex, you can sign up and enjoy the benefits of receiving crime alerts.
By using email and text alerts to alert your neighbors, and by receiving alerts from your neighbors, you can be more aware and enhance your personal safety and the safety of those you love!
