Abstract:The purpose of my thesis is to uncover what kind of governmental support makes WhatsApp Neighborhood Watch Groups function better. The research focuses on two types of groups with governmental support; those affiliated with a community police officer (GAP) and those affiliated with a local municipality (GAM). The well-functioning of these groups is affected by two independent variables; their affiliation (either GAP or GAM), and by four dependent variables; group hierarchy, group activities, the goals and rules of the group and the longevity of the group.My results show that GAMs function better than GAPs. On average, they have a higher membership total, group members abide better to the group rules, adhere better to group goals and have a higher longevity
