Observe, Acknowledge, Report and Share (O. A. R. S.)


Observe
Neighbours should know what is normal and what is out of the ordinary. Neighbourhood Watch in Spain helps neighbours observe their neighbourhood.
Acknowledge
Neighbours acknowledge their neighbours. Good neighbours also acknowledge those people they don't know. They let possible intruders know they have been seen and observed.
Report
Neighbours report suspicious activity and allow the police to take the best course of action as they see necessary. Police cannot respond to community problems if they are unaware of them.
Share
Sharing information with the police and with your neighbours is a key to success. Knowledge is a powerful positive tool that prevents crime.
