"Neighborhood Watch Radio brings the instant alert and group communications.
It's here, it's inexpensive, and it's the best
neighborhood safety and first responder tool available.
We must reaffirm and maintain neighborhood control
to close any gaps existing between
neighborhood informal control, and Police formal control."
Bob Hutchinson, N5CNN

Wireless Industry Association
From the National Sherriff's Association:
"Research has concluded that crime is higher in 'socially disorganized areas' marked by weakened informal control due to an erosion of shared norms. . . . Since formal control organizations (specifically law enforcement) cannot be in all areas at one time, informal control by residents is necessary if that community is to experience low crime rates."
Sponsors and Supporters are in every community in the United States. Indeed just about all public safety and law enforcement organizations are involved in Neighborhood Watch type programs to help reduce crime.
But declining public budgets reduce 911 response times. Neighbor Up for neighborhood safety.
