Neighborhood Watch Signs Get Upgraded With Pop Culture Crimefighters

By: 06.18.14  •  6 Comments

Andrew Lamb (not his real name, for legal reasons) creatively alters old neighborhood watch signs around Toronto, Ontario. Using wheatpaste and pictures of pop culture heroes and famous cops, he lets the people of Toronto know they’re being protected by Batman, Wonder Woman, Mel Gibson, RoboCop, and more. We feel safer already. Well, maybe not so much on the Mel Gibson block. Lot of profiling going on.

We’ve collected some of our favorite enhanced neighborhood watch signs from the many at Andrew Lamb’s Instagram account. Thanks to Laughing Squid for the assist.
