Today, blockwatches allow the police and residents to work together to solve issues involving crime and social concerns in your community. Blockwatches are one of the original foundations of community policing and are referred to as the eyes and ears of law enforcement. Members look out for neighbors and their property and report suspicious activities to the police.
Through community mobilization, neighbors, businesses, co-workers and students form an active partnership in the community. Blockwatches allow individuals the opportunity to discover common interests and goals that they share with their neighbors.
Please contact Chief Smith or Melissa Schopp at 614-279-9411
