Block Watch Program
Block Watch is a “neighbour helping neighbour” program. Residents form a Block Watch group and create a communication network. They make a commitment to watch out for each other’s homes and report suspicious activities to the police and to each other. They also keep each other informed about neighbourhood occurrences, burglary, thefts and other crimes or problems occurring on their street by providing this information to their Block Watch Captain. For more information about the Block Watch program, visit the Coquitlam RCMP Block Watch website.
