Becoming a Block Watch Captain
What are the resposibilities of a Block Watch Captain?
The block watch captain, or sometimes a Block Contact, serves as a primary point of contact between the crime prevention programs of the police department and the neighbors on the block. This Block Contact or Bock Captain takes on the responsibility for maintaining and updating the Block Watch Contact list or map and is the primary point of contact to whom the police will send information and alerts. The captain/Contact will be asked to distribute that information to the rest of the block. These responsibilities can be shared on a block by a co-captain.
What if I cannot continue as a Block Captain?
If you find you are no longer able to continue as a Block Captain, we ask that you find a replacement in your block and pass that information onto the Crime Prevention Coordinator responsible for your geographic area. If you are unable to find a replacement, please pass that on as well.
