How Neighborhood Watch Organizations Support Safe Communities , Monroe, Louisiana

If you live in the Monroe, LA, area, you may have already heard about the rise of volunteer neighborhood watch organizations intended to promote more cohesive, safer communities across the county. Last year, local police encouraged locals to foster these groups, which help residents report crimes and seek the law enforcement support they need.

Studies show that the sense of communal responsibility deters crime and promotes viable methods to combat a variety of incidents. At CenturyLink® Security, the friendly professionals encourage their fellow residents to get involved with local watch organizations. In addition to installing a quality home security system, community involvement can lend an additional layer of protection for you and your neighbors.

Home Security Systems & Neighborhood Watch Organizations: The Winning Combination for a Safer Community

Warnings as a Mode of Prevention

Neighborhood watch organizations can place city-mandated signs in their area to alert potential criminals to local risks and repercussions for bad behavior. Similar to signs that alert criminals to the presence of a home security system, these signs serve as invaluable deterrents before illegal activity even begins. No one wants to break into a home with camera surveillance and motion sensors, just as no one wants to target a neighborhood with a volunteer watch resident on every block.

Effectiveness of Surveillance

These organizations encourage neighbors to develop the relationships necessary to communicate with one another in case something seems amiss. They also may develop online message boards and phone databases that provide a quick, clear method to spread awareness about local issues.

Importance of Residential Control

Like a home security system, neighborhood watch organizations allow residents to take control without risking their personal safety. Instead of taking defensive action, residents are encouraged to instead report suspicious activity to local law enforcement. At the press of a button or a quick phone call, non-emergency or emergency support will be on the way.
