The Ranch Watch Program ® is designed to prevent criminal activities in rural and ranching communities. The program works for land and livestock owners in rural subdivisions or large ranches and those in between, through education, and information.
Those using the "No Trespassing" sign have had considerably less trespass problems. The Ranch Watch Reflective Road Sign warns criminals as they travel rural county roads. Rural neighbors watching out for each other and their property is not new, but centuries old.
However, the signs let criminals know they are under the watchful eye of a neighbor or a Sheriff's Deputy patrolling the area. Criminals, or those about to become criminals understand what the Ranch Watch Program ® logo, handcuffs with eyes, signifies.
The Ranch Watch Program ® is not only a great safety awareness program, it is a great public relations program. Ranch Watch can be used by organizations that have ties to the ranching and rural community such as; 4H, Sheriff's Posse, horse groups, Cattlemen's, Cattlewomen's and other livestock organizations.
(We can produce a sign to fit your particular organization or agency)
Warning signs are one part of the Ranch Watch Program ®, the program also includes:
- Identification Program for your tack and equipment
- Extra Patrol Requests
- Signs- No Trespass, Keep Gate Closed, Equine signs, etc.
- Ranch GPS (Global Positioning System) for emergency medical fly-in
- Sheriff's Internet Web page with information on most common Fence, Trespass and other Livestock laws
- Additional training for Sheriff's Deputies in Livestock/Equipment Theft Investigation and Prevention.
And of course the Ranch Watch logo "Handcuffs with eyes ®" tells it all!
If your County does not have the Ranch Watch Program ®, contact your Sheriff to start the program or have his permission for your organization to start the program in your county. If you have further questions about the Ranch Watch Program ® you can E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
