How You Can Help
One of the most asked questions for us is “What do I have to do”? Short answer is not much.
A Block Watch is just that, people looking out for their neighborhood.
- If you see something suspicious or out of place call the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency number at 520.866.5111. If it’s an emergency, always dial 911.
- Never expect that someone else will call about a situation. As a matter of fact, the more calls about a single instance raises red flags and gets the attention of the Sheriff’s Office.
- You don’t want to over do it, but the more calls to the Sheriff’s Office makes them aware of the issues. As a result you get more patrols in your neighborhood.
- Communicate to your neighbors when you see something suspicious so everyone is aware. The more eyes the better.
- Designate a Block Captain if you like – not necessary, but your neighbors will know there is a “go to” person.
- If you choose to be a Block Captain, let us know! As people start asking about the Block Watch we can steer them to you if you are in their neighborhood!
- Start a Phone / Instant Message Tree – get your neighbors’ contact information.
- If you can get a couple of neighbors to take a walk around your neighborhood every now and then it makes a good presence and lets people know there is an active community here that is watching. The last thing a criminal wants is an active and watchful community… kinda bums them out.
A Block Watch, simply put, are neighbors watching out for neighbors.
