Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 20, 2014
Police.us.org is set to release a comprehensive guide to how to launch and maintain a neighborhood watch program that can help keep communities safe from danger, the company announced yesterday.
“As police departments are cutting their budgets, neighborhood watch programs are becoming more important than ever before,” a Police.us.org spokesman said. “People are learning that they need to help protect their communities. But if they don't set up a watch program correctly, it can be ineffective or even dangerous. We want to help people learn how to do it right so it makes their communities safer.”
The neighborhood watch guide was put together with the help of current and former law enforcement officials, he said.
“People should not put themselves at risk while participating in neighborhood watch programs,” he said. “They should also know what their rights and responsibilities are. These are not skills that are taught in the schools. We think that there is a major need for this kind of guide, and that our efforts will be a help to local communities around North America.”
The guide will be posted on the Police.us.org website, linked to through social media, and posted on their blog, he said.
“We have made the guide as easy to understand as possible,” he said. “People should be able to read this and then set up and maintain their neighborhood watch programs for years to come.”
