As a modest community initiative, Citizens Crime Watch is a private, non sectarian, non profit organization, created as defender-community collaborations to improve public safety, government accountability and reduce the number of victims, are consistent with those of law enforcement agencies in providing information about crime prevention and the justice system to the community.
This program creates an alliance of citizens working with all coordinating government agencies to address the growing crime problem in the community. Through Citizens Crime Watch, citizens are educated in areas such as personal protection, home security, all kinds of crime reporting, environmental education, micro-economic, human and peace development programs.
Its programs are all designed to encourage citizens to band together to fight crime, indulge in socio-civic actions, environmental initiatives, cultural promotion, anti-drug abuse campaigns and many more bringing change in their respective neighborhoods throughout the community. Citizens' Crime Watch still proves to be a more than a viable crime prevention program that is instrumental in promoting police/community relations.
Moreover, some of these community based programs involves citizens more than patrolling their community, assisting all law enforcement agencies such as Philippine National Police, Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency and other pertinent agencies in detecting, preventing crime but rather mobilize volunteers annually on work projects assisting host communities through volunteer service, direct project funding and child sponsorships.The opportunity for human and economic development generates hope. And where there is hope, there can be peace.
