Block Watch

In Surrey, Block Watch is a well-established program that helps build safer neighbourhoods by encouraging residents to take a proactive approach to crime prevention and safety.

Through education on situational crime prevention tactics like target hardening, property marking and reporting suspicious activity, Block Watch provides an avenue for the community to take responsibility for its own safety by reducing the opportunity for crime.

Neighbourhood participants involved in the program report feeling engaged in their community and this makes it easier to detect suspicious behaviour that can undermine public safety. Block Watch is intended to:

  • improve relationships between police and community,
  • build neighbour relationships, and
  • reduce the opportunity for crime.

Block Watch in Surrey is administered in partnership by Surrey RCMP and the City of Surrey.
