How does Block Watch work?

Block Watch organizes and extends what you are probably already doing on an informal level. We tend to know and watch out for our neighbors next door, but neighbors at one end of the block may not know the neighbors at the other end of the block. Organizing a Block Watch makes this attitude of watchfulness more systematic, and provides a block map with neighbors’ names and telephone numbers that can be used in case of an emergency.

Block Watch is simple to create and can improve the security of your neighborhood while also increase your sense of community.
