 What is the IBCANW?

Welcome! This a public page to share news, events and updates on what the Ideal Beach Community Neighborhood Watch is doing. The Neighborhood Watch is organized and administered by the Ideal Beach Community Association.  Its purpose is to educate community members, deter and prevent crime, and build a stronger community.  

What does the IBCANW Do?

There are many roles, responsibilities and activities that compose the IBCANW.  Many people believe that in order to help out with a neighborhood watch that they have to donate large amounts of time to walk around the neighborhood.  The Watch itself, which is the role of being present in the community in various ways, is only one part of what a neighborhood watch does.  Yes, we do need folks who can be out and about at different times.  However, there are many other ways to participate and keep the community safe.  Our Facebook page and Group allows us to communicate faster than ever and provide a virtual neighborhood watch that can function twenty-four hours per day.  Monthly meetings allow us to collaborate in real time with law enforcement and first responders while being able to identify critical safety and security needs of the community.  There is also a need for Block Captains to disseminate important information and a volunteer committee which serves as the administration to the neighborhood watch itself.  We research, share and learn about the best practices and tools in order to maximize our experience in our beautiful community.  Activities include IBCA activities but also specific community building events such as Trunk or Treats and child safety programs.  So, come out or reach out and find out how you can help your community today!
