The Community Watch program is designed to provide communities within a certain geographic area a way of dealing with quality of life issues. Every citizen wants their neighborhood to be a safe place for their family to grow and be protected from outside harm. Part of the Community Watch program is giving communities a way to better themselves through cooperation and education.
Being a member of Community Watch allows one to participate in unique training, safety assessments and connections with fellow neighbors. When neighbors come together for a common purpose, they become an incredible force and criminals and the effects of natural disasters. Below are some of the programs offered to Neighborhood Watch participants:
- Targeting Hardening your Home
- Lighting Assessments
- Reporting Suspicious Activity
- Strategic Planning
- Disaster Preparation
The above courses are taught by qualified personnel of the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office to individuals who participate in the program. For more information on what our office can do for your neighborhood, contact:
