I am growing aggravated with the level of crime (i.e. break-ins) in my neighborhood. Particularly when the older woman who lives alone behind me had her house robbed in the middle of a Sunday afternoon. So my question is this, how affective are neighborhood watches and how would one go about creating an affective one? Does one just talk to the local LEO and pass out fliers and have coffee meetings?
Has anyone here ever started a watch or participated in one? What was your opinion and how would you have made it better? Would you invite the registered sex offenders in your area to the meetings? Do I then get to move about my area and night all tact out in camo and night vision goggles (JK)
