Upcoming block leader training
Neighbors knowing neighbors and looking out for one another is the best crime prevention tools. Community-based crime prevention has a much greater impact on reducing crime than enforcement alone.
Block leaders receive crimes that are reported within two blocks of their residence. If you are interested in being a block leader or be a co-leader with your current block leader, please think about coming to an upcoming training.
Crime Prevention Block Leaders help build community one block at a time and work with neighbors and MPD if there is a problem on the block. Block Leaders also develop a communication tool where residents have the ability to contact each other because neighbors who are informed are the strongest crime prevention tool.
