How does Block Watch work?

Block Watch is a neighbour-helping-neighbour program. Residents on a block form a communication chain aided by a block map of names, numbers and addresses. They watch out for each other's homes and report suspicious activity to the police and to each other to reduce the likelihood of residential crime. The Block Watch Office provides information to area Captains through fan outs from the police records.


What's Involved?

Guidelines and leadership applications are now available on line for the program, as well as volunteer task descriptions for all participants. Getting Started.
