Alert Neighbors is a free program provided to engage neighborhoods in discussions about crime and public safety. The program instills effective collaboration and communication within neighborhoods to prevent crime and fulfill participant’s needs of security. In 2015, 957 community members were impacted with Alert Neighbors training and 58 were trained to be leaders in the community with Block Captain/Coordinator training. Decreased incidents of crime that have an otherwise negative economic impact on society are reported in neighborhoods which participate in this program. In addition, the sense of community formed by the program frequently serves as a catalyst for neighborhoods to thrive and invest in additional positive outcomes.
A fragmented neighborhood is an easier target for crime. The Alert Neighbors program teaches residents how to secure their homes, how to be safer in their homes and on the street, and what to look for and how to report that which is suspicious. The Alert Neighbors program promotes improved communication among neighbors about problems and solutions and fosters improved relations between law enforcement and the community.
Decreased burglaries and related offenses are reported by law enforcement. We are a transient society with more working families and busier lifestyles. This means homes are left empty during all hours of the day and night. This creates a target for criminal activities. An active Alert Neighbor program builds community. It often serves as a springboard for addressing other neighborhood concerns.
Any community resident! Renters or homeowners; apartments; city or rural neighborhoods; schools; businesses – anybody interested in keeping their families safe and secure.
