Neighborhood Watch Association (NWA) is a group of people organized for the purpose of considering and acting upon any of the broad range issues affecting the livability and quality of their neighborhood. A NWA may be "recognized" by the City. A recognized NWA is one that meets the guidelines of the Neighborhood Initiative Office and CAO's.
This autonomous organization formed by the people within the specifically defined geographic area includes the home owners, property owners, renters and businesses within the defined boundaries.
Intent of the Neighborhood Watch Association:
Build a partnership with the community to reduce crime and improve livability
Instill a greater sense of security while reducing the fear of crime
Create a "Sense of community" and put the "neighborhood" back into the neighborhood
