Thank you for agreeing to Meet the Challenge and start or revitalize a Neighborhood Watch group! As part of the newly-created Citizen Corps initiative, President Bush has challenged Americans to become involved locally in homeland security efforts, and one way to do this is to start a Neighborhood Watch group.
Law enforcement agencies depend on alert citizens to identify and report things that seem out of the ordinary in their neighborhoods, communities, and places of business. In essence, citizens act as law enforcement’s “eyes and ears.” By working through Neighborhood Watch networks, the public can play a potentially crucial role in the detection, disruption and prevention of terrorist acts.
By filling out this form and recording your new Watch group or your intention to start a Watch group, you are taking an important step toward helping to secure our homeland. Thank you for Meeting the Challenge!
