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.
