The goal of the Peachtree City's Neighborhood Watch Program is to enhance the quality of community life in Peachtree City through the establishment of an active partnership between residents and police. Active involvement by citizens in the watching, caring and protection of their neighborhoods serves to deter and to reduce crime. The active involvement increases the safety of the lives and property of its residents.
It is a crime prevention program that teaches citizens techniques to reduce the risk of being victimized at home and in public, trains citizens on the importance of recognizing suspicious activities and how to report them, allows neighbors to get to know one another and their routines, so that any suspicious activity can be reported and investigated and acts as a cohesive body of concerned citizens that address issues that are important to the entire community.
