The premise behind Block Watch is neighbours getting to know each other, and watching out for one another. The families on a block form a communication chain added by a block map of names, telephone numbers and addresses. They watch out for each others’ homes and report suspicious activities to the police and each other to reduce the likelihood of residential crime.
Block Watch also provides tips on a better way to secure your home, information on how to mark your property, protective window stickers, and crime prevention strategies.
To get involved and join Block Watch, contact your nearest Community Police Station. There may be a Block Watch team in your area that you can join, or start your own team.
