National Neighborhood Watch Program
The United States National Neighborhood Watch Program (also known as the USAonWatch) is a neighborhood watch program run under Citizen Corps that focuses on residential areas through citizen involvement. Originally developed in the late 1960s, the National Sheriffs' Association (NSA) officially created the National Neighborhood Watch Program in 1972 to assist citizens and law enforcement.
In 2002, the National Sheriffs' Association in cooperation with USA Freedom Corps, Citizen Corps and the U.S. Department of Justice launched USAonWatch to expand the National Neighborhood Watch initiative beyond its original crime prevention role to assisting and preparing neighborhoods for disasters and with emergency response.
