Youth Crime Watch
Based on the Neighborhood Watch concept, a school crime watch helps youth watch out for each other to make the entire school area safer and more enjoyable. The school crime watch is a student-led effort that helps youth take a share of responsibility for their school community. Youth who participate in a school crime watch learn how to keep from becoming victims. They also learn the best ways to report suspicious activities or arguments between students before they turn into fights or other disturbances.
