Block Captains

BlockCaptainScrBecome 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.

Resident Leads – Molly Mulcahy, Cristina McGroarty

Tasks/ Duties

  1. Find other neighbors that want to help  you

Good reasons to get involved:

  • Block units organize fun events too!
  • The more you know and interact with your neighbors, the safer you will become.
  • There cannot be a law enforcement officer on every corner, so
    citizen involvement is essential to combat crime.
  • You and your neighbors are the ones who really know what is
    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!
