Crime prevention is EVERYONE'S business. The Blaine Police Department understands resident partnership in preventing crime is essential.
Concerned residents are the best asset any police department has in fighting crime. The Neighborhood Crime Watch program was developed to train and educate residents to be actively involved in their neighborhood, stay informed, and work together with their neighbors to address mutual concerns and find solutions.
To participate in Neighborhood Crime Watch, please complete the following steps:
- Contact the Blaine Police Department's Neighborhood Crime Watch Coordinator.
- Decide your "Block Watch" area. This averages about 30 homes, however every neighborhood is evaluated on an individual basis.
- Pick a meeting date and time. The Neighborhood Crime Watch meetings are scheduled Monday through Thursday evenings. At the meeting, a member of the police department will attend to share current crime trends in your neighborhood, provide crime prevention tips and resources, and answer questions.
- Select a location for meeting. The meetings are usually held at a home. They can be held in local churches, libraries, or schools.
- Invite your neighbors! The police department has invitations and tools for your use.
