Become a neighborhood hero!
As a block captain, you get to know your neighbors and build partnerships with the police and city government. By organizing a neighborhood watch, business watch, or apartment watch, you serve as a leader for your block and encourage neighborhood involvement. Signing up as a block captain is rewarding and assists crime prevention efforts.

going on in your community.
- By cooperating with each other and the police, people can help fight
crime in their community in the most effective way – before it begins!
