Neighborhood Watch is undoubtedly one of the oldest and most well known crime prevention programs in history. In 1972, as a result of the increase in crime in the late 60's, NSA responded by creating a national homeland security initiative to establish resources to assist local law enforcement and citizens. Thanks to multiple grants by the Department of Justice, NSA has been able to provide multiple resources to sheriffs and police around the country for almost 40 years.
The National Neighborhood Watch Institute has signs for purchase; they are the only NNW-approved vendor for these signs.
Celebrate Safe Communities
In 2008, the National Sheriffs' Association (NSA), the National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC), and the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) teamed up on an exciting project designed to help local law enforcement agencies and their community partners kickoff celebrations of Crime Prevention Month every October. NSA, NCPC, and BJA are eager to assist your department in educating, mobilizing, and thanking all the residents, businesses, and others helping keep your community safe from crime!
Crime Prevention Patch
The National Sheriffs' Association is offering Crime Prevention Patches to any sheriffs office and sheriffs department across the nation. These patches are given to area Boy Scout troops and Explorer Scout programs for their involvement in the crime prevention process.
