After an increase in crime, residents of an Oregon neighborhood have decided to take up arms instead of involving the police.

According to the DailyMailOnline, neighbors have organized what they call a ‘Glock Block,’ after several residents obtained concealed carry permits.

Fliers posted around the neighborhood read, 'This is a Glock Block, We don't call 911.'

While most of the crime has involved incidents of petty theft and vandalism, residents still say they have had enough.

The group says they practice responsible use of weapons.

Police have caution the group against pursuing vigilante justice if crimes are spotted.

Police make a note of cautioning anyone from pursuing vigilante justice, though armed citizens have become more common deterrents to crime.
