The Neighbors on Watch (NOW) program was created to assist the Clark County Sheriff’s Office through public participation and observation, helping reduce crime and improving the quality of life in our neighborhoods.
These efforts foster cooperation between citizens and deputies, educate citizens on crime prevention, and create a high visibility, public presence in the neighborhoods.
By uniting residents for a dedicated reason, this increases crime awareness among the citizens of the neighborhoods and helps make law enforcement more effective, productive, and provide a safe, secure environment for all neighborhood residents.
