Helen Jain reports:
"A neighborhood watch is an organization led by the neighborhood to help minimize crime in the area. In the program, citizens of the neighborhood work with the police and look for suspicious behavior...When you are starting up a new program or when you have a new family in the area, writing a letter to the family inviting them to meetings is an important part of informing others and involving them in the program. Start with a sentiment such as 'Dear Neighbor.' If you want to make the letter more personal, you can also put in the names of your neighbors if you know them. Explain the neighborhood watch program...Tell why the program is important...State in the letter that it is part of your responsibility as a citizen to report crimes when you see them. Write the invitation. Tell the neighbor they are invited to the next meeting and provide the complete address and start time. Give some information about what will happen...Provide a closing statement and signature...Add a phone number for questions or RSVPs."
