The Block Watch program provides individuals and groups of people with the tools and knowledge they need to support safe, healthy and socially rich neighborhoods.

  • Neighbours watch out for neighbours.
  • Families in a designated area form a communication chain aided by a block map of names, telephone numbers and addresses.
  • Some groups arrange a patrol by those members who walk their dogs in the neighborhood on a regular basis (Citizen on Patrol)
  • Participants meet yearly to organize and get acquainted.
  • Each group has a Captain trained in the philosophy and practices of Block Watch.

Block Watch Captains

As a Block Watch Captain you are fostering a working relationship and awareness among residents that helps ward off potential dangers in your neighbourhood.  With a little gift of time you are demonstrating to your friends and neighbours the importance of being committed for the good of all.
