Block Watch

neighborhood watchBy cooperating with each other and the police, neighbors can help fight crime in their community the most effective way—before it begins.

Crime prevention is reliant on a positive relationship between the Police Department and our community. We are pleased that the Bridgeport Police Department has formed an active partnership with the BRCC. Through our Neighborhood Block Watch program, we are making things hard for criminals to impact our community.

This community-based crime prevention program is a simple and direct approach to protecting Black Rockers from criminal attacks. The program involves the reduction of criminal opportunity through our participation in crime prevention measures, such as being alert and aware, reporting suspicious and criminal activity to the police, and initiating actions which reduce criminal opportunity.

Please join our efforts to create a safer Black Rock by volunteering to become an area coordinator or street captain or by volunteering to assist in ongoing education and safety awareness programs. Membership in the BRCC is NOT required to join the Block Watch.

  • Area Coordinators oversee sectors of the neighborhood. In addition to recruiting street captains, area coordinators also communicate regularly with captains in order to maintain a consistent and accurate flow of information related to criminal activity and safety concerns. The area coordinators communicate regularly with each other and with the Public Safety Committee chairperson.
  • Street Captains are responsible for communicating information with their neighbors and keeping them informed of any suspicious activities or concerns. They will also encourage neighbors to contact their street captain with any information related to security issues.

If you are interested in becoming an Area Coordinator or Street Captain, please fill out this form or contact us at safety@blackrockcc.org!
