Cellular industry wholesalers and retailers are uniquely in the mainstream of communications and Internet technology. The neighborhood is part of their lives too.
As important and useful as cell phones and smart phones are today, as an emergency device, they dial 911 or some other number or connect to a URL. The Neighborhood Watch Radio is the neighborhood Alert device for first responder help right in the neighborhood. It also is a neighborhood Chat radio device.
Many wireless industry cellular dealers and retailers are already marketing and selling GMRS and UHF two way radios and are knowledgeable about setting up for Neighborhood Watch Radio groups.

Bob Hutchinson says, "With a bad economy, down-sliding local tax bases and budgets, I hope residents "neighbor-up" and immediately improve neighborhood communicating. We've got to start talking again. Isolation from neighbors defeats neighborhood cohesion and informal control and fuels escalation of property and violent crime."
