What is Neighborhood Watch?
Neighborhood Watch is a citizens' organization devoted to preventing crime and vandalism within a neighborhood. It is through coordination and cooperation with the Winston-Salem Police Department that members learn non-intervention ways to deter crime. Neighborhood Watch members are to stay alert to unusual activity and contact the authorities.
