Victoria Police Block Watch

Your neighbours are your Best Burglar Alarm. Block Watch is all about neighbours helping neighbours. Households, apartments or condominiums on a block form a communication chain aided by a map of names, telephone numbers and addresses.

Participants watch out for each others’ homes and report suspicious activities to the police and each other. This communication is crucial in reducing the likelihood of residential crime. Joining or starting a Block Watch in your neighbourhood takes just a couple minutes of your time.

History

The Block Watch program was initiated in Seattle in 1974, with participating homes seeing a decrease in residential break-ins of between 48-62%. Surrey was the first municipality in B.C. to start a Block Watch program, which has now spread the length of the Lower Mainland and through several communities across the Province.

Mission

Purpose

A commitment to communities to build safer neighbourhoods by providing support, guidance, training and resource materials to develop and operate Block Watch programs.

Goals:
