Police Expand Block Watch Program with New Captains
The Peoria Police Department is currently recruiting new Block Watch Captains who want to help build a sense of community and security in their neighborhoods.
On Saturday, January 26th at 8:30a.m a Captains Training Meeting will be held for those interested in finding out more about the program.
Organizers will detail what a Block Watch Captain's responsibilities include, and how much work is involved in being a Block Watch Captain. Participants will also learn how to start a successful Block Watch Program in their neighborhood.
The Neighborhood Block Watch program gives residents who participate a greater sense of security by reducing the fear of crime in their community. The program also brings a community together under a common goal and helps neighbors get to know one another.
Those interested in attending this training meeting need to reserve their spot no later than Thursday, January 17, 2013 by calling 623-773-7099.
