The Cleveland Police Foundation in Partnership with the Ohio Crime Prevention Association Presents the ” Tip of the Week”


Your neighborhood may consist of single family and duplex homes; apartment buildings; a combination of single homes and apartments; commercial buildings; and schools. Crime may be right there scaring everyone off the streets, or just looming on the horizon. The Neighborhood Block Watch Program is citizens joining with the police to take responsibility in ensuring the safety of their homes and neighborhoods, and improving the quality of life. Crime prevention and resistance is different from the philosophy of crime control. Instead of the traditional approach, which emphasizes the reaction to crime and apprehension of the criminal, crime resistance emphasizes modifying the attitude and behavior of the citizen, as well as the modification of the environment to eliminate the opportunity for crime. This provides a unique opportunity for both police and citizens to become involved in order to actively control crime in our communities.
In the weeks to come you will learn about the importance of the Neighborhood Block Watch Program and how it works to deter crime (cont. next week)th
