In Uganda, the study looked at the impact of family variables on crime prevention and neighbourhood watch. With r values of 0.043 and sig of 0.403, the findings show that there is an insignificant positive association between family variables and neighbourhood watch. With r values of 0.125 and sig of 0.015, the association between family characteristics and crime preventer deployment exhibits a positive significant correlation. On the other hand, with r values of -.060 and sig 0.244, there is a negative insignificant link between crime preventer deployment and neighbourhood watch. It was further discovered that before being deployed in communities as crime preventers, youngsters were not properly equipped with crime prevention abilities, according to the study. Second, care policy implementation is insufficient and this limits appropriate family function in the face of crime. More specifically, campaigning for neighbourhood collaboration was also decreasing watchfulness among crime preventers engagement for Ugandan peace and security. This necessitates addressing the highlighted shortcomings in the development of peaceful communities in the country. Based on the identified links between crime preventer deployment and neighbourhood watch, the study recommends that neither model should be used in the same place at the same time. Crime preventers should be deployed in less organized homesteads such as slums, while neighbourhood watch should be applied to structured stable neighbourhoods such as estates and rural communities.
