LVNA NEEDS NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH BLOCK CAPTAINS
- Neighborhood Watch is the cornerstone of the LAPD's crime prevention
strategy. It enlists the active participation of residents, in
cooperation with law enforcement, to reduce crime and encourage social
interaction in communities throughout the City.
The continuity and success of the Neighborhood Watch program hinges on
the person referred to as the Block Captain. The "Block Captain" is a
community member who acts as a liaison between those who work and/or
live in a particular area, and the officers assigned to that area.
Through the Block Captain, and through neighborhood general meetings,
officers pass along crime prevention tips and information to members of
I placed two items in the "FILES" section: 1) LVNA Block
Captains List & 2) LVNA Block Captains Map. The map shows that about
1/3 of our Larchmont Village Neighborhood has no active Watch Program.
If you live on one of those blocks and if you agree that the
Neighborhood Watch Program is IMPORTANT, please contact me and let's
get your block organized. It's really quite easy, and you and your
neighbors will definitely benefit!
