Neighborhood Block Watch Programs Are Important!
Published on May 26, 2011 by ecso | Updated on May 27, 2011
This newsletter is being sent to all Neighborhood Watch Block Captains to better inform residents of issues of concern in the community. This problem-oriented program is directed specifically at targeting problems that pose the greatest concern to the community. Through the collaborative efforts of the Police Department, Block Watch members and residents, we can identify, analyze and target issues of crime in the community. Block Watch Members are the extra eyes and ears for reporting crime and helping the police department and their neighbors. Our Neighborhood Block Watch Program is a community action program that relies on mutual cooperation aimed at reducing crime in the community. This program establishes a formal network for concerned citizens to communicate with other neighbors and the police department, and in turn become more aware of the activity that occurs in their neighborhoods. With the beginning of spring, the police department will begin to increase our uniform patrols throughout the community.
