One Department of Justice report on business and community development explains how vandalism spreads. It says that criminals see small amounts of vandalism as a “signal that a neighborhood is uncared for.” This “creates the perception that these places are left available for criminal activities” — so they target these neighborhoods again and again, perpetuating the cycle of destruction. It’s tragic, and you can protect your business and community from it by joining or forming a neighborhood watch with the other businesses on your block. Five decades after law enforcement first developed the neighborhood watch model, it still works in communities across the country.
