For over 30 years, the Block Watch program has brought together residents to help increase safety in Vancouver neighbourhoods. With over 400 Block Watch groups, that’s 8000 extra pairs of trained eyes and ears across the city – all looking out for each other and their property.
In addition to receiving help with most crime, safety and nuisance issues, the program’s main purpose is to help reduce residential break-ins and thefts from vehicles. It provides a greater awareness to neighbours on how to be alert to and report suspicious activities.
Block Watch is all about neighbours helping neighbours.
How Does it Work?
Our dedicated Block Watch constable and civilian coordinator provide resources to help you connect with your neighbours, and then train and support your team to work together to reduce crime and create a safer neighbourhood.
