Welcome to , a community web site developed for, and maintained by, the residents of Plainfield, NJ. This web site is designed as a 'virtual' neighborhood watch group, and is a place for all to gather and share information.

This site is designed to cover everything from tips on the latest home security systems in our collection of SMART Homeowner resources, to strengthening our interaction with local authorities and sharing (in near real-time) details of local incidents in and around Plainfield. Our goals for this site are both local and regional: from getting to know our neighbors just a little bit better to preempting the development of negative 'Quality of Life' issues in our city and county.

Are Neighborhood Watch groups really effective in reducing crime?

The web site, sponsored by the United States Department of Justice in partnership with the National Sheriffs' Association, answers that question with a resounding "yes!"

"Throughout the United States, dramatic decreases in burglary and related offenses are reported by law enforcement professionals in communities with active NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH programs.

Statistics show that when a concerned citizenry does its part, the possibilities are endless…and the results positive. NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH is now the most successful anticrime initiative in the country and the most effective and least expensive tool for restoring the safe, pleasant environment we all want for our families! This is homeowners’ insurance that works!"
