Block Watch is a crime prevention program, which enlists the active participants of citizens in
cooperation with law enforcement to reduce crime in their neighborhood and community within
Maricopa County jurisdiction. It involves neighbors getting to know each other and working
together in a program of mutual assistance. Citizens are trained to recognize and report
suspicious activity in their neighborhood, and an implementation of crime prevention techniques,
such as home security, operation identification and others.
By cooperating with each other and the law enforcement officers, you can fight crime the most
effective way: Before it happens! Interested in starting a Block Watch? Contact your local district
