Neighbourhood Watch

A neighborhood watch is a citizens' organization devoted to crime and vandalism prevention within a neighborhood. It is not a vigilante organization, since members are expected to not directly intervene in possible criminal activity. Instead, neighborhood watch members are to stay alert to unusual activity and contact the authorities.

Neighbourhood Watch is also a short story by Greg Egan, based upon a perverse fantasy twist to the legitimate neighborhood watch concept.

The plot revolves around the attempt of a small town to fight crime by signing a contract with a demon.
