DUTIES OF BLOCK CAPTAINS

The Block Captains have one of the most important functions in the Neighborhood Watch program: supervising the actual citizen participants 
who join Neighborhood Watch in their communities. The Block Captain is responsible for a designated territory and is expected to:

1. Encourage neighborhood participation in the program

2. Welcome new neighbors to your community and encourage their joining Neighborhood Watch

3. Compile a list on all persons in their designated territory who wish to participate in the program as well as their addresses and phone numbers

4. Assist in formation and maintenance of the telephone notification system

5. Assist the coordinator in scheduling the neighborhood meetings, which must be held at least twice a year

6. Inform all members of Neighborhood Watch techniques: i.e. how to observe suspicious activities, how to utilize Operation I.D., etc

7. Provide incentive for the community to continue their crime prevention efforts


WHAT IS SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY

* Someone running from a car or home.

* Someone screaming. If you can't determine what the screams are for, call the Sheriff's Office.

* Someone going door-to-door in the neighborhood or looking into windows and parked cars.

* A person who seems to have no purpose wandering in the neighborhood.

* An unusual or suspicious noise that you can't explain, such as breaking glass or pounding.

* Vehicles moving slowly, without lights or with no apparent destination.

* Property being removed from a closed business or residence.


HOW TO REPORT

Law enforcement officers need to have accurate information as quickly as possible about a suspicious activity or crime in progress. 

* Give your name, address and telephone number.

* Describe the event in as brief a manner as possible. Who, What, Where, When and How?

* Tell if the crime is in progress or past occurred.

* Describe the suspect, if known. What sex, race, age height weight, hair color, clothing, accent, beard or mustache and distinctive characteristics or clothing.

* Describe the vehicle if one was involved, include color, make, model, year, license plate, special markings, dents and which way did it go.
