Block Watch is a community-based crime prevention program which aims to improve the quality of life within a neighbourhood by minimizing preventable crime and promoting closer community ties. The program relies on the community and the Police working together in a partnership to achieve these aims. A Block Watch committee, along with a Block Captain, host meetings to bring neighbours up to date on issues pertaining to their area.
