Neighborhood Block Watch Next Steps

If I’m Interested, What Are the Next Steps?

  1. Read the Introduction to "Neighborhood Watches" document.
  2. Contact your neighbors to find out their best times to attend a meeting (typically a weekday evening about 6:30 or 7 p.m.).
  3. Schedule the meeting.
    1. To do so, call the Police Department Community Services Unit and speak with:
      Sergeant Ryan Deane
      Phone: 860-594-6204    Email Sergeant Deane
    2. Distribute flyers inviting neighbors to the NBW meeting. The police department can supply flyers that should be distributed about 7 to 10 days before the meeting.
  4. On the day before the meeting, give your friends and neighbors a reminder call or flyer.

Note: Neighborhood Block Watch meetings may be scheduled from May through October
