What is Neighborhood Block Watch?
Huntington Park’s Neighborhood Block Watch Program is a way for residents to help its local Police Department to prevent crime before it occurs. So we are asking you to become active and take personal responsibility in combating crime. Overall, our goal is to reduce crime and enhance the quality of life in our community.
Block Watch doesn’t require you to perform any special tasks or take extra duties. You don’t have to patrol the neighborhood, or tell your neighbors every aspect of your business. Block watch just involves being alert as part of your everyday life. All it requires is that you and your neighbors be familiar enough with each other to know who belongs in the neighborhood and who doesn’t; which cars are part of the neighborhood and which aren’t; recognize when something suspicious is going on and being a little more observant of changes in your neighborhood.
What Neighborhood Block Watch Is Not…
A vigilant force working outside the normal procedures of law enforcement.
A program designed for participants to take personal risks to prevent crime.
A 100% guarantee that crime will not occur in your neighborhood.
