Q: Why should I report crime when the criminal
justice system seems to do nothing?
A: The idea is to keep crime from happening in
the first place! Often convictions cannot occur because people are
unwilling to be witnesses or provide information. Neighborhood
Watch aids and supports witnesses in these matters. Remember, even
an anonymous call can help solve a crime! Greystone Farms has a
successful Neighborhood Watch program; please help support it by
doing your part.
