The Neighborhood Security watch program on Oahu is sponsored by the Honolulu Police Department, and is a program which involves total citizens participation in involvement in a self help cooperative battle against crime. Its primary purpose is the protection of our communities and our property.
Crime can create a climate of fear and mistrust. One of the most effective and lease costly answers to crime is neighborhood watch groups. Watch groups are a foundation of community crime prevention.
The overall goals of the Neighborhood Security Watch are:
- To increase public education concerning local problems and effective preventive measures which lead to improved residential security.
- To implement community-based and coordinated programs that are designed to increase the level of community awareness and mutual concern for the protection of homes within a given community.
- To enhance community and police relations.
The NSW program is spearheaded by the program coordinator. Like all other participants, is a volunteer, working as the liaison between the community and the police. They work directly with the beat officer in that geographical area, the assigned district resource officer, the designated block captain and community members.
The Block Captain
The Block Captains are directly responsible to the coordinator. They receive information from the members and relay that information to the coordinator. Information that is received from the coordinator is likewise, passed to the members.
The members are the ever important hub of this wheel of security. Their eyes and ears, what the observe and hear in terms of suspicious activity most often are a vital link to solving crime.
NSW Signs and Decals
The Neighborhood Security Watch sign is a metal or flexible street sign with the same logo and design as on the NSW decal. The program must have a 60% participation rate within the geographical area in order to merit this sign.
