Making life tough for the criminal
Crime is a serious problem. We all know that. Yet a lot of it can be prevented if only we would take away the criminal’s opportunity. If we stopped making it easy for him.
Contrary to what you may think, the average mugger or burglar is not a cold, calculating criminal genius. He’s an opportunist looking for an easy victim. And many of us are very accommodating. We help him by leaving doors unlocked, by letting strangers in, by taking shortcuts through alleys.
The purpose of the Neighborhood Watch is to communicate how, by using simple, common sense techniques; you can substantially reduce your chances of becoming the victim of a crime. We encourage you to be prevention conscious.
No one can make themselves totally impregnable to crime. But everyone can take steps to make the criminal’s job harder and his chances of success slimmer. Joining together as a Neighborhood and Watching out for one another is our first step.
WHCA Neighborhood Watch is working with the Haverford Township Community Policing Department to organize block captains so that information can be distributed throughout the neighborhood by blocks. Please return your survey to your block captain for coordination of our Neighborhood Watch.
