With number of crimes going up in our area, it’s important that we know more on how to deter crimes. On January 21, the National Sheriffs’ Association will be organizing a free training course in Washington DC to do just that.

This training is designed to build the capacity of law enforcement officers assigned to work with community groups by providing specific instruction on the Neighborhood Watch Toolkit. The course will increase participants’ skill levels by teaching them the proper utilization of the tools and the most effective methods of maximizing the Toolkit’s value for their citizens and communities. The training is intended to be interactive and applicable to participants with all levels of Neighborhood Watch experience.
