The Problem

The threat of crime to people and property is ever present. The threat is particularly serious in inner city neighborhoods where drugs, gangs and urban decay increase opportunity.

The Cause

The breakdown of the spirit of the community or neighborhood appears to be a major contributor.

The Solution

Criminal justice studies show that citizen involvement programs - including Neighborhood Watch and Business Alert - are among the most effective ways of reducing crime. These programs work because they are based on the concept of neighbors helping neighbors. They also help to rebuild residents' sense of community identity and pride.

The Strategy

San Diegans United for Safe Neighborhoods has been created as an umbrella organization to assist neighborhood residents in establishing and maintaining community involvement programs with the goal of creating crime free neighborhoods.

Neighborhood Watch

You can help reduce crime in your neighborhood or community. Start a Neighborhood Watch NOW! Email Safe Neighborhoods at, or the Police Storefront at 619-531-1580. Make a difference, Get Involved!
