This program encourages to call the police immediately if they observe a crime in progress or suspicious activity. Periodic Block Watch meetings are held where participants are instructed in crime prevention techniques and updated on crimes that may be occurring in their neighborhood. Block Watch participants receive a quarterly newsletter and a sign that can be placed in their window identifying them as a Block Watch member.
The Block Watch programs is currently made up by 80 Block Watch Captains and consists of 1769 houses. Hosting a Block Watch meeting is easy! Meet with your neighbors and discuss a time and place to meet. Then contact the Fox Point Police Department and we will arrange for a Crime Prevention Officer to attend your meeting. For more information please call Officer John Adamaitis or Officer Meg Morelli at 414-351-8911.
