National Neighborhood Watch – a Division of the National Sheriffs' Association

Crime prevention through neighborhood cohesiveness and collaboration.


Law Enforcement Game Plan

The Law Enforcement Game Plan has been designed for sworn law enforcement officers or non-sworn public service officers working for a law enforcement agency and assigned to serve as a liaison to Neighborhood Watch.

Curriculums highlighting important Neighborhood Watch topics such as recruitment and selection of volunteers, managing meetings, target hardening for homes, awareness and observation skills and reporting of suspicious activities are all designed to enhance local efforts.

This game plan will guide you from an initial introduction to Neighborhood Watch all the way to working with mature groups as they expand the scope of their local activities and partner with other citizen based organizations such as Citizen Corps.
