What is Crime Watch?
A neighborhood Crime Watch is one of the oldest and most effective crime prevention programs in the country, bringing citizens together with law enforcement to deter crime and make communities safer. Our local crime watch volunteers are not vigilantes, they do not assume the role of the police. Their duty is to ask neighbors to be alert, observant, and caring—and to report suspicious activity or crimes immediately to the police.
Crime Watch is Free!
All too often, Hernando Beach residents think it costs something to belong to the program. It doesn't cost a dime - just a little bit of your time. Any money collected from donations is carefully accounted for and deposited in our Hernando Beach Crime Watch account.
Our Crime Watch Program
The goal of the Hernando Beach Crime Watch program is to enhance neighborhood security, heighten the community's power of observation and to encourage mutual assistance and concern among neighbors. Crime watch volunteers are the “eyes and ears” of our community. They are the closest link to local law enforcement and the advantages to Hernando Beach for having our crime watch group are invaluable. These include: Safer community ~ Less crime and incidents ~ Improved quality of life ~ Relationship with law enforcement ~ Stronger and more tight knit community ~ Effective and low cost approach to crime ~ Knowing a neighborhood has a watch program can deter criminals.
Crime Watch Patrols
Patrolling our Hernando Beach community in our Crime Watch vehicle is NOT a requirement to be recognized as a Hernando Beach Crime Watch volunteer. You can be an advocate for an increased role in crime prevention simply by being the eyes and ears of your neighborhood, attending meetings and contributing your time, skills and knowledge.
Crime Watch is getting people involved in crime prevention, making the homes in our community less of a target and being good neighbors to one another.
