Vigilance

Vig´i`lance
n.1.The quality or state of being vigilant; forbearance of sleep; wakefulness.
2.Watchfulness in respect of danger; care; caution; circumspection.
3.Guard; watch.
Vigilance committee
a volunteer committee of citizens for the oversight and protection of any interest, esp. one organized for the summary suppression and punishment of crime, as when the processes of law appear inadequate.
Noun1.vigilance - the process of paying close and continuous attention
2.vigilance - vigilant attentiveness; "he keeps a weather eye open for trouble"

VIGILANCE. Proper attention in proper time.
     2. The law requires a man who has a claim to enforce it in proper time, while the adverse party has it in his power to defend himself; and if by his neglect to do so, he cannot afterwards establish such claim, the maxim vigilantibus non dormientibus leges subserviunt, acquires full force in such case. For example, a claim not sued for within the time required by the acts of limitation, will be presumed to be paid; and the mere possession of corporeal real property, as if in fee simple, and without admitting any other ownership for sixty years, is a sufficient title against all the world, and cannot be impeached by any dormant claim. See 3 Bl. Com. 196, n; 4 Co. 11 b. Vide Twenty years.
