Block Watch

Block Watch logoBlock Watch is a national program that is based on the principle that neighbors working together are the first and best line of defense against crime. Block Watch is simple to begin and can improve the security of your neighborhood while increasing your sense of community.

It involves neighbors getting to know each other and working together in a program of mutual interests and assistance, citizens being trained to recognize and report suspicious activities in their neighborhoods, and the implementation of crime prevention techniques, such as home, garage and personal safety and security.

The Milwaukee Police Department with Citywide Block Watch Council offer citizens a manual created to help reduce crimes in area neighborhoods through the development of Block Watch groups.
