You can improve the quality of life on your block or in your building.
Neighbors, usually on one block, work together
- Be aware of suspicious activity and watch out for each other.
- Call 911 when you see suspicious activity or crimes in progress.
- Work together to solve problems and deal with issues.
Information goes both ways
- You receive regular, updated information about neighborhood crime from your crime prevention specialist.
- Help us help you by letting us know what's happening on your block or in your building. Share your successes and concerns.
How to start a club
- Contact your area crime prevention specialist.
- Choose one or more neighbors to be the club leaders. We recommend having more than one person to share the responsibilities.
- Your volunteer leaders attend training, which covers:
- Crime prevention
- How to organize neighbors and run effective meetings
- How to keep the club active
- Resources available from your crime prevention specialist
When to meet
- Holding at least one meeting or social event per year.
- Meeting more often if you have crime or livability issues.
