1. Determine Interest.
Talk to several of your neighbors to determine their level of interest.
2. Choose a Coordinator.
Once a Coordinator is chosen, he/she needs to find interested people to serve as block captains. The coordinator serves as a liaison between the Police Department and the block captains. The block captains take information to the neighborhood residence and then bring feedback to the coordinator to be relayed to the Police Department or the Community Policing Officer.
3. Plan a Meeting.
Arrange a time and place to meet with the residence of your neighborhood. At this meeting, choose block captains and compile a list of concerns and fears to present to the Police Department for suggestions or recommendations.
