July 3, 2020 – Safe neighborhoods are ideal because everyone has the right to grow up, live and work in safe a safe community. This is the underlying principle behind the renowned manual for Community Policing, Community Watch Administration, Fourth Edition.
“Community Watch Administration is a 550-page manual, with 13 sections that offers a step-by-step method to set up and maintain a successful Community Watch Program,” said Tom Monson the publications publisher, and principle contributor.
The manual also includes more than a dozen lesson plans for addressing crime prevention issues such as home security, personal safety, assault prevention, auto theft, active shooter, disaster preparation, frauds against seniors, child safety, homeland security, identity theft, and many others.
Underlying the manual is a deeper philosophy of community policing that comes forth from Robert Peel, the founder of the London Metropolitan Police in 1829. He described the police as members of the public who are paid to devote full-time attention to duties that belong to every citizen in keeping the community safe.
“Since 1989, our mission has been to provide people with the tools and training to help communities become better places to live and work. We’re proud to offer this valuable resource for Community Watch,” Monson concluded.
The material for Community Watch Administration has been sourced from thousands of hours of research carried out on law enforcement officers, community and business leaders, and other professionals. The manual is the ultimate source for everything one needs to know to create and maintain an effective and successful community watch program for all types of places, including neighborhoods, business districts, rural areas, airports, marina and others.

“Most useful tool I’ve seen for community policing.” – Daphne Levenson, Director – Gulf States Regional Community Policing Institute.
